Most pets are seniors at the age of 7 although some giant breeds are seniors at 5 years of age! We love our senior pets and strive to keep them happy and comfortable for as long as possible. We recommend a comprehensive physical examination biannually for our senior patients. We believe in being proactive so we recommend comprehensive blood testing at least yearly to try and catch manageable conditions such as thyroid disease and kidney disease early.
Common things we do for our seniors include arthritis pain management, therapeutic laser therapy, weight management and dental care. We carry supplements that are designed to support joints, bladder, skin, heart and immune system. We help to treat cognitive dysfunction in pets with natural remedies and prescription medications if needed. Many senior parents suffer from anxiety- we can help ease your pet’s anxiety and try to determine the cause.
