Senior Pet Care

SENIOR PET CARE AT AAHA-CERTIFIED ANIMAL HOSPITAL

When your companion animal reaches a senior status (defined as age 10 for small dogs and cats and age 8 for larger dogs), his or her immune system weakens and the chance of developing serious disease or illness greatly increases. Such conditions as diabetes, pet dental disease, Cushing’s disease, cataracts, glaucoma, and arthritis, to name a few, are among a long list of commonly seen senior pet conditions. With this increase in susceptibility to sickness or injury, we highly recommend biannual (twice yearlyveterinary wellness exams to help prevent and detect the early onset of disease. The earlier the diagnosis, the less pain and distress your pet will have to endure.

Armed with knowledgeable veterinarians and a complete pet pharmacy, we can provide your furry friend with a safe, trusted, and appropriate means of prescribed pet pain management that has been FDA-approved.
