We consider most cats and dogs to be “seniors” by the age of seven. As pets age, changes in health are common, but there are many ways we can help pets age comfortably so that their quality of life doesn’t diminish. Common health issues for senior pets include:
- Dental disease
- Kidney or urinary tract disease
- Liver disease
We recommend all seniors visit us every six months so that we can detect any health concerns early, before they become serious. Early detection of illness and disease is essential to living a long and healthy life. For that reason, we may sometimes recommend special diagnostics, such as blood tests, imaging and laser therapy to make sure your pet is healthy and comfortable.
