Senior Care


senior careOlder pets make wonderful companions, and thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, pets are living longer than ever!  Pets age faster than people, and are considered seniors at around 7 years of age. Your pet’s health care needs change as they age.  Nutrition, exercise, and daily routine can all be affected by age.

We can’t keep your pet from aging, but we can help you learn the difference between “normal” aging and treatable medical problems.  Schedule an appointment today with our competent, compassionate, friendly veterinarians for a complete history, checkup, and exam.

Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life, and even MORE important as they age. We understand the aging process and can help you help your pet.

If your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, it’s very important to schedule routine checkups. Treatment recommendations can change as the condition progresses. Medication dosages need to be adjusted or even changed completely.  Blood tests, urine tests, and other routine diagnostic testing are vital for senior pets.

At your pet’s senior checkup we will address any questions or concerns you have. We welcome your questions and encourage you to be fully involved in decisions regarding your pet’s health care.  We are here to help ensure that your pet is safe and happy throughout the “golden years.”
