Senior Pet Care

Did you know that pets age more quickly than people and might be categorized as “seniors” as early as age 7? Your pet’s health care requirements alter as they do as they age, much like our own. As your pet ages, its nutritional requirements, activity preferences, and many other parts of its daily routine can alter. But how can you distinguish between “natural” aging and a health issue? Older pets may have very subtle changes that, like in humans, can go undiscovered until a significant health concern has developed.

Every stage of your pet’s life requires routine wellness visits, so be sure to maintain any scheduled appointments for your senior pet. Understanding the aging process in pets is the greatest approach to safeguard your pet as they age. Even if your elderly pet is currently receiving treatment for a health issue, guidelines for care can alter as a disease worsens. Sometimes it’s necessary to modify the drug or adjust the dosage. To assess how your pet’s health is either responding to existing treatment measures or changing with age, routine wellness blood work and other diagnostic testing are crucial for senior pets.

During the wellness checkup for your senior pet, you can ask any questions or voice concerns you may have for your pet. We invite you to participate in discussions on the medical care of your pet and welcome any questions you may have.

Because of advancements in veterinary science, animals are surviving longer than ever and making fantastic companions. You play a crucial role in your senior pet’s medical care. Throughout their “golden years,” we are here to help make sure that your pet is secure and content.
