Senior Pet Care

New pets aren't always youngsters. Whether new to your home or a longtime family member, older pets make wonderful companions.


Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, pets are living longer than ever; however, your senior pet has different medical needs from puppies and kittens.

Prevention is the key to keeping older pets healthy. Symptoms of arthritis, periodontal disease, kidney failure or cancer are often mistaken for signs of aging. We recommend all senior pets undergo at least one physical examination each year, though more frequent examinations are encouraged.

You are an important ally in keeping your senior pet healthy. If your pet is experiencing any changes in behavior, we urge you to bring him or her in for a check-up. We can make sure you and your faithful companion enjoy many years together.
