Senior Wellness Care

Many pet owners believethat their four-legged friends are just going to live a relatively short life, get old, and pass on. But modern veterinary medicine can help pets live longermore comfortable lives. Catching problems early can make all the difference. Report and changes in appetite, thirst, bad breath, lumps, and changes in behavior. Talk your veterinarian often, and work out a senior wellness plan to help your pet live happy senior years.

Pets over the age of seven are considered seniors. As in all stages, our goal for the golden years of your pet’s life is to provide a healthy, comfortable, long life. The best way to do this is to catch diseases early. If illnesses and diseases are diagnosed and treated early, years and comfort can be added to your pet’s life.

Since changes happen rapidly in animals, senior wellness exams are performed every 6 months. We also recommend that blood and urine be tested once a year to check the “inside health” as well. Common aging changes, especially to the kidneys, need to be monitored closely. At your pet’s senior wellness appointments, the doctor will perform a full physical exam and discuss any changes in your pet’s lifestyle. At this point, the doctor will review with you the different options available for blood work or other diagnostic testing, and make recommendations specific to your pet.


Cats and dogs are living longer due to high quality nutrition and medical care. The treatment of disorders such as cancer, kidney failure, heart disease and arthritis have improved greatly. Our furry family members can have a good quality of life and we can enjoy them longer by implementing these treatments.  We encourage and promote EARLY DETECTION SCREENING (annual blood testing) for every age.  This allows us to:

  • Establish and verify your pet’s normal blood values
  • Detect the onseet of disease before physical symptoms appear
  • Make sure your pet’s internal organ systems are healthy.

Our senior pets benefit the most from having a full exam and weight monitored every six months. At these visits, important topics covered include diet, body condition, mobility, nutritional and joint supplements, dental health, behavior changes and pain management. Senior wellness blood and urine evaluation is very important to catch disease early. X-rays are commonly used to screen for disease as well. Common aging changes, especially to the kidneys, need to be monitored closely. We look at every animal as an individual and can discuss the best preventative treatment plan for keeping your pet happy, healthy and comfortable.
