In recent years, great strides have been made in recognizing the special needs and requirements of our “senior citizen” dogs and cats. Our veterinarians are well equipped with the knowledge and diagnostic tools to identify age related problems and formulate realistic strategies to allow our pets to live longer and healthier lives. If your dog is seven to nine years of age or older (depending on breed) or your cat is ten years of age or older, it is now in its geriatric years. We will be happy to discuss with you our recommendations for care and nutrition. Often the most simple solution to address the pain of arthritis, difficulty maintaining ideal weight and incontinence can slow the progression of these common ailments. Call us today to see if your pet could benefit from such screening.
