Senior Pet Care
How your pet's needs change
Advances in veterinary medicine have made it possible for pets of all kinds to live long, healthy lives. However, when they become seniors, they require extra attention and medical care which is why it’s important to understand how their needs change as they age.
Generally speaking, cats and dogs are considered seniors at 11-years-old and 7-years-old, respectively. When your pet becomes a senior, they’ll need regular physical exams, vaccines, lab work, and dental care. Through diagnostic testing, such as complete blood count, urinalysis, and fecal testing, we can detect diseases that commonly affect older pets.
Some conditions that typically affect senior pets include:
Luckily, many age-related health conditions can be prevented or managed via medication and/or treatment. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy well into their golden years and we can do that by addressing their needs on an individual basis.
