As pets age, their care needs also change. Cats are generally considered senior at 11-years-old, and dogs at 7-years-old. If you have a senior pet, you know just how loving and wonderful these pets are, especially as they enjoy their twilight years. And thanks to the advancements in veterinary medicine, we can ensure they live their golden years comfortably and to the fullest.
It’s important to keep in mind that senior pets have different nutritional and exercise needs than their younger counterparts. Additionally, they may experience different medical needs as well, including care for arthritis, mobility issues, diabetes, dementia, and more. Rather than annual wellness examinations, we suggest bringing in your senior pet for a visit every six months. This will help us maintain their high quality of life as they continue to age.
