Senior Pet Health and Wellness
As in humans, advances in veterinary medicine and nutrition have translated to longer lives for our pets, but they also face similar challenges such as diabetes, arthritis, cataracts, obesity and decreased mobility. We have often known our ‘senior citizen’ pets since they were puppies or kittens – and we have a special bond of trust with them.
It is essential to be proactive about your pet’s care in their senior years. In addition to offering the best chance for early detection and treatment of health issues, regular wellness visits provide an opportunity for you to share your concerns with the veterinarian. We recommend the following to ensure your senior pet has a happy, active life:
Semi-annual Wellness visits
Senior Wellness blood testing
Nutritional counseling and weight management
