Pets age faster than people and can be considered “seniors” at around 7 years of age. Just as our health care needs change as we age, your pet’s health care needs also change including nutritional needs, exercise habits, and many aspects of your pet’s daily routine.
Regular wellness visits are extremely important in this stage of your pet’s life. The best way to help protect your pet as he or she ages is to understand their aging process. Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing allow us to evaluate how your pet’s health is responding to current management strategies or changing with age. Even if your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, treatment recommendations can change as a condition progresses.
You are an important ally in your senior pet’s health care. We are here to help ensure that your pet is safe and happy throughout the “golden years.”
