Pet Senior Care in
We’re here to keep your pets feeling their best.
As your pet ages, we’ll be there to make a personalized quality of life assessment and assist with pain recognition and management of any other health issues they may have. We’ll be sure to put your pet on a plan to feel as best as possible as they age.
Early Detection & Intervention: As our pets age, they become more susceptible to health problems. Unfortunately, many of these problems can go undetected until they become serious. That’s why it’s important to be aware of the signs of aging in your pet and to partner with a veterinarian experienced in senior pet care. Regular checkups are vital for the early detection and intervention of health issues and can help your pet enjoy a longer, healthier life.
As your pet ages, you may notice changes in their energy levels, appetite, weight, or sleeping habits. They may become more resistant to exercise or may start to struggle with stairs or jumping. These changes can be subtle, so it’s essential to stay tuned in to your pet’s overall health and well-being. If you notice any changes that concern you, don’t hesitate to contact your veterinarian for guidance.
Partnering with a veterinarian experienced in senior pet care can make all the difference in your pet’s health as they age. Together, you can develop a plan for early detection and intervention of health issues and ensure that your pet enjoys a long and happy life.
Cognitive Dysfunction: As our pets age, they may begin to suffer from Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS). CDS is similar to Alzheimer’s disease in humans and can lead to a decline in cognitive abilities. Symptoms of CDS include disorientation, changes in sleep patterns, irritability, and loss of interest in normal activities. As the disease progresses, pets may suffer from increased anxiety and depression and even become aggressive. While there is no cure for CDS, there are ways to help manage the symptoms and improve your pet’s quality of life. Senior pet care products like supplements and brain-training toys can help to slow the progression of the disease and make your pet more comfortable. With proper care, senior pets can enjoy a good quality of life despite the challenges of CDS.
