Geriatric Care for Senior Dogs & Cats
Our senior pets need regular routine wellness exams more than ever as the chance of them developing age-related conditions increases.
With diligent care and regularly scheduled exams, your pet can enjoy good health and an extended quality of life, so it's important that they see the veterinarian even if they seem healthy.
Our veterinary team is here for you to provide experienced care and to answer any questions you might have about your aging pet's health. With routine preventative care and diagnostics, we can identify emerging health issues in your pet and offer proactive treatment to help your pet as soon as possible.
Is my pet considered 'old'?
While your pet may still seem young and spry, you may be surprised to learn that they are already considered a senior at age 7.
Typical Health Problems
Advances in veterinary medicine and pet nutrition have resulted in our companion animals living longer now than they ever have before.
Age-related concerns may include:
- Kidney disease
- Urinary tract disease
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- Blindness and hearing loss
- Joint or bone disorders
Veterinary Care for Seniors
Our veterinary team will inquire about your pet's home life, their nutrition and overall health and supplement those questions with further diagnostic testing.
Based on test results, we'll recommend a treatment plan that may include activities, medications and dietary changes that can help improve your senior pet's health, comfort and well-being.
Routine Wellness Exams
Preventative care is key when it comes to keeping your pet happy and healthy. These exams will give our veterinarians the ability to detect diseases and emerging conditions at their earliest stages.
With regularly scheduled physical examinations, early detection of disease can improve the quality and long-term health of your pet.
