Pet Geriatrics

Medical issues are more common in older dogs. We encourage all of our senior patients to come in for biannual physical examinations so that we may track age-related changes, assess organ function, and establish treatment programs that are unique to your pet’s requirements. With age, we emphasize the significance of quality of life to ensure that your pet’s later years are as joyful as possible.

As our pets enter their senior years, they require specialized care to ensure their health and happiness. Pet geriatrics focuses on providing tailored healthcare for aging pets, addressing their unique needs, and enhancing their overall well-being.

Regular veterinary check-ups become even more important during this stage of life. These visits allow our veterinarians to assess their physical health, screen for age-related conditions, and make necessary adjustments to their healthcare. Diagnostic tests such as blood work and urine analysis help identify potential issues like organ dysfunction, arthritis, dental problems, and cognitive decline.

Proper nutrition is crucial for senior pets. Specialized senior pet food formulas provide essential nutrients to support aging bodies, manage weight, and promote joint health. Also, adjusting exercise routines to accommodate their energy levels and incorporating interactive toys or games can keep their minds sharp and alleviate boredom.

By embracing pet geriatrics, we ensure our beloved companions receive the care and attention they deserve during their golden years. It allows them to live their best lives, bringing continued joy and companionship to our homes.
