With the help of expert veterinarians and the innovation of modern veterinary medicine, our pets are living longer, happier, and healthier than ever. However, we still must devote extra time and care to our elderly pets despite the advanced veterinary medicine we have today.
Cats are considered seniors once they reach 7 years of age. Dogs reach senior status depending on their size. Small dogs become seniors when they are 7 years or older and large dogs are considered elderly by age 5.
We believe senior pet wellness care appointments every 6 months are the best way to detect, correct, or lessen the severity of the health problems that accompany old age.
Take care to monitor your cat or dog’s behavior and diet as he or she grows older. Record and report any changes you may observe to your veterinarian when you visit.
Changes in behavior and diet sometimes hint at more serious illnesses. Partnering with us will guarantee your senior pets the best veterinary care available and make your pet’s senior years truly golden.
