Did you know that pets age faster than people and can be considered "seniors" at around 7 years of age? Just as our healthcare needs change as we age, your pet's healthcare needs also change. Nutritional needs, exercise habits, and many aspects of your pet's daily routine can change as your pet ages.
But how can you tell the difference between "normal" aging and a medical problem? As in humans, some health issues that affect older pets can begin with very subtle changes that may go unnoticed until the problem has become serious. Senior pet care is one of the most important things you can do for your loved pet. Senior pets are at an increased risk for illnesses such as kidney disease, heart disease, arthritis and dental disease.
Bi-annual exams and yearly health screens allow the doctors to evaluate and identify diseases early, even if your pet is not showing signs of illness. Older pets make wonderful companions, and thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, pets are living longer than ever! You are an important ally in your senior pet's health care. We are here to help ensure that your pet is safe and happy throughout the "golden years"
We are a Cat Friendly Practice!
In 2012 our practice was awarded gold level certification by the AAFP that has given us the distinction of being a 'cat friendly practice'. This title means that we as a clinic, have met the standards of the American Association of Feline Practitioners for the facility set-up, and that our staff understands the specific needs of cats.
Our patient forms are available online so they can be completed in the convenience of your own home or office.
