The Importance of Senior Pet Care

Senior pets, typically defined as those aged seven years and older, require proactive healthcare to maintain their quality of life and address age-related health concerns. Regular senior pet care can help detect and manage common age-related conditions, ensuring your furry friend remains happy, comfortable, and thriving in their golden years.

Dental Care

Dental health is often overlooked, but it plays a significant role in the overall well-being of senior pets. Our dental care services include routine cleanings, extractions, and treatment for dental diseases to keep your pet’s mouth healthy and pain-free.

When to Seek Senior Pet Care

Changes in Behavior or Mobility

If you notice changes in your senior pet’s behavior, such as increased lethargy, difficulty getting up or moving around, or changes in appetite or drinking habits, it’s essential to schedule a senior pet care appointment promptly.

Weight Changes

Unexplained weight loss or gain can indicate underlying health issues in senior pets. Our veterinarian can assess your pet’s weight and body condition and provide recommendations for managing their weight to support their overall health.

Dental Problems

Bad breath, swollen gums, or difficulty eating can signal dental issues in senior pets. Schedule a senior pet care appointment if you notice any signs of dental disease in your furry friend.
