Senior Pet Care
It's pretty common knowledge that our pet's age at a faster rate than we do and it's also pretty common knowledge that as we age our health care needs change. Did you know that most dogs and cats are considered seniors at the age of 7? At this age we start to see changes in our pet's nutritional needs, activity levels and daily routine, but how can you tell the difference between normal aging and a medical problem?
The first step is regular wellness visits so that you and your veterinarian can keep on top of any changes in your pet's health and habits. We understand the aging process well and we can help you to understand the process and anticipate the changes you may see. Regular blood work is also important for your senior pet because it can give us early warning of potential issues and it also helps us to adjust or change medication appropriately.
Thanks to advancements in veterinary medicine and research in companion care, pets are living longer, healthier lives. With your help, we can make sure your pet is happy and comfortable in their "retirement years".
