Preventive Care For Your Senior Pets

Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life, so don’t forget to keep your senior pet’s scheduled wellness appointments. The best way to help protect your pet as he or she ages is to understand the aging process in pets. We understand that process and can help you help your pet. Even if your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, treatment recommendations can change as a condition progresses. Sometimes medication dosages need to be adjusted, or medication may need to be changed. Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing are important for senior pets because these tests allow us to evaluate how your pet’s health is either responding to current management strategies or changing with age.

Many dogs are “people pleasers.” They try to hide their pain. You are the best person to recognize the painful signs of osteoarthritis as your dog ages.

Ask yourself if you have noticed any of the subtle signs in your pet:

Reluctance to climb stairs
Difficulty jumping
Stiffness after exercise
Difficulty rising

Your senior pet’s wellness examination is also your chance to have us address any of your questions or concerns about your pet. We welcome your questions and encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your pet’s health care.
