Understanding Pet Geriatric Care

Pet geriatric care focuses on meeting the unique health needs of senior pets, typically those over the age of 7. Just like humans, pets can experience age-related health issues such as arthritis, dental disease, and organ dysfunction. Geriatric care aims to manage these issues and improve your pet’s quality of life.

We perform thorough examinations to assess your pet’s overall health and detect any age-related health issues. We also offer dietary recommendations tailored to your senior pet’s nutritional needs, as well as pain management strategies to help alleviate discomfort associated with conditions such as arthritis.

Benefits of Pet Geriatric Care

  • Improved Quality of Life: Geriatric care can help manage age-related health issues, improving your pet’s quality of life.
  • Early Detection: Regular examinations can detect age-related health issues early, when they are more easily treatable.
  • Tailored Care: Geriatric care is tailored to your pet’s individual needs, ensuring they receive the care they need as they age.
  • Peace of Mind: Geriatric care provides the peace of mind that your senior pet is receiving the specialized care they need.
