They might slow down and their behavior may change. Senior pets are more prone to dental disease, arthritis, blindness, diabetes, cancer, and dementia. Providing your senior pet with outstanding veterinary care is crucial for their comfort and wellbeing.
We recommend more frequent wellness visits for senior pets, at least twice a year. This gives our veterinarians the ability to keep senior pets’ changing health needs in check, and catch any newly developed conditions as soon as possible. Senior pets should also be tested and screened for various diseases more frequently in accordance with their wellness exams. Our veterinary professionals are aware that even if a cat or dog does not seem to have physical ailments, no exam is complete without further investigation beneath the surface.
