Health Problems in Senior Pets

Improvements in nutrition and advances in veterinary science mean that our cherished companions now enjoy increased longevity compared to the past.

While this is certainly something to be celebrated, pet owners and veterinarians now face the challenge of managing a variety of conditions that come along with advanced age.

Some of the conditions we commonly see in elderly dogs and cats include:

Wellness Exams For Aging Pets

During routine checkups, our team will thoroughly examine your senior companion and ask about their diet and lifestyle. Testing may be recommended to gain additional insight into their overall health.

Any masses should be assessed to determine if they are cancerous. Annual or semi-annual bloodwork and urinalyses are also recommended to assess organ function.

Recommendations may include changes to your companion's diet or exercise routine as well as medications to help your senior pet stay happy and comfortable.

The Importance of Preventive Care

Regular examinations for senior dogs and cats provide our veterinarians with the opportunity to detect developing conditions early.

Early detection allows treatment to begin when the condition is most easily managed, often helping to slow or stop the progression of the disease.

With regular physical examinations, your furry family member will have their very best chance of achieving quality long-term health.
