Senior Pet Care

Your Pet’s Golden Years

Pets are not just animals; they are cherished members of your family. As your loyal companions age, their needs evolve, and it’s our mission to ensure they age gracefully while receiving the specialized care they deserve.

Determining when your pet enters their senior years can be a nuanced process, influenced by factors such as species and size. For cats, the senior stage typically begins between seven and eleven years old, while small dogs may reach this stage around seven years old, and large or giant dogs as early as five to six years. Recognizing the signs of aging and understanding how to care for your senior pet is the first step to providing them with a comfortable and fulfilling life.

Addressing Health Issues

Senior pets may face various age-related health issues, ranging from vision and hearing loss to dental concerns, arthritis, cancer, and kidney disease. Our experienced team is well-versed in diagnosing and treating these issues, offering personalized solutions to ensure your pet’s well-being.

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle

Supporting your senior pet’s well-being may involve dietary adjustments, weight control, and modifications to their living environment. We work with you to manage your pet’s weight, create a comfortable living space, and recommend supplements or dietary changes as needed. Additionally, we provide guidance on exercise and mental stimulation to keep your pet agile and alert.

Increased Veterinary Care

Senior pets benefit from more frequent veterinary check-ups. We recommend biannual visits for senior pets, enabling us to detect and address health issues promptly. These check-ups often include bloodwork and dental care to ensure your pet’s holistic well-being.

Your senior pet deserves a fulfilling and healthy life, and we are dedicated to helping them achieve just that. If you have questions or concerns about your senior pet’s health, contact us to schedule an appointment. Our team is here to provide the support and care your beloved companion needs as they age gracefully.
