GERIATRIC CARE

Our veterinarians are dedicated to ensuring that your pet's golden years are as bright as possible. To this end our veterinarians recommend the following for all senior pets:


  1. - Every 6 month examinations by the veterinarian: This allows our veterinarians to potentially catch issues aeearlier which generally leads to better and longer lives for our furry friends

  2. - Annual blood testing: These test allow our veterinarians the chance to evaluate the functioning of organs and red and white blood cells. Again, generally, the quicker we find an issue the easier it is to treat

  3. -An appropriate senior diet: Senior pets have different nutritional needs compared to your average adult ro even a puppy/kitten. As such we strongly recommend your pet be on a well balanced diet which is established by AAFCO for the senior life stage

  4. -Additionally the veterinarians may recommend supplements or specific additives to the food to help your pet feel their best. 

  5. -Annual urinalysis: The urine provides a window into the inner workings of your pet which, again, allows your veterinarian to catch potential issues that much quicker. 


​Did you know that pets age faster than people and can be considered "seniors" at around 6 years of age? Just as our health care needs change as we age, your pet's health care needs also change. Nutritional needs, exercise habits, and many aspects of your pet's daily routine can change as your pet ages.
