Senior Pet Care

Senior pet care is extremely important for aging pets, who can’t tell us about the aches, pains, and illnesses they may be experiencing relating to their age. From senior wellness exams to diagnosis and treatment, we’ll always be here for your senior pet.

Caring For Your Senior Pet

Our pets age much more quickly than we do, and this can mean that owners often don’t realize that their pet has special age-related needs much sooner than they expect. Senior pets require special care, attention, and sometimes unique treatments for age-related issues.

With that in mind, we recommend that our clients bring in their senior pets twice a year rather than once a year for wellness exams— again, pets age quickly, and a lot can happen in just six months.

Our medical team will conduct any necessary diagnostics, screenings, and analysis of age-related symptoms to determine whether your senior pet is staying healthy. From bloodwork and urinalysis to x-rays and glaucoma screenings, we’ll do whatever it takes to keep your soulful old friend happy and healthy.

Bloodwork

Bloodwork is used to identify conditions that are common in senior pets, such as infections or anemia. It can also be used to detect other common age-related issues such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease.

Urinalysis

Urinalysis (the analysis of your pet’s urine sample) can detect issues such as UTIs, diabetes, liver disease, and more— while also providing an overall picture of your senior pet’s health.

Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging includes x-rays and ultrasounds, which can detect serious issues such as cancer, arthritis, and others.
