Senior Pet Care

Senior Pet Care

Advances in veterinary medicine have made it possible for companion animals to enjoy long, happy and healthy lives. As pet age, however, their needs change and they require extra attention and medical care. The senior pet care services at Wadsworth Animal Hospital are designed to address the specific needs of animals who have reached their golden years.

Generally speaking, a cat is considered to be a senior by the age of 11 and a dog by the age of 7. At this point in their lives, it’s essential that they receive regular physical exams and diagnostic testing. This enables us to identify any potential age-related issues so we can address them in the most timely and effective manner. 

Some conditions that commonly affect senior animals include:

  • Arthritis 
  • Obesity 
  • Diabetes 
  • Dementia
  • Thyroid imbalances
  • Behavioral changes 
  • Mobility issues
  • Kidney, heart, and liver disease
  • Tumors and cancer 

Fortunately, many age-related health problems can be prevented or managed. The team at Wadsworth Animal Hospital is committed to helping your older pet enjoy a truly amazing life. Contact us today to schedule a senior exam and health evaluation today.
