Senior Pet Care

Your pet's health care needs change as they mature.

Cats and dogs age faster than us, and your pet reaches his or her "senior years" by the age of 7.  Often, symptoms of disease or chronic conditions may be misinterpreted as signs of "old age".  Regular wellness exams (at least once a year, though more frequent exams are encouraged), routine blood tests and diagnostic procedures can keep your senior pet healthy for years to come.

You are your older pet's most important ally when it comes to health care.  As your pet ages, he or she may develop diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure and other chronic conditions.

Watch for changes in your pet's health and behaviour.  If you notice any sudden changes, we urge you to schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. Together, we can develop a health care plan that best fits the needs of your older pet.

We understand the life-long bond you share with your faithful companion, and it is our goal to strengthen and preserve that bond!
