Senior Pet Care
How your pet's needs change.
Advances in veterinary medicine have made it possible for pets of all kinds to live long, healthy lives. However, when they become seniors, they require extra attention and medical care which is why it’s important to understand how their needs change as they age.
Some conditions that typically affect senior pets include:
- Cognitive dysfunction
- Thyroid disease
- Behavioral changes
- Mobility issues
- Kidney, heart, and liver disease
- Tumors and cancer
Luckily, many age-related health conditions can be prevented or managed. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy well into their golden years.
If you have questions about how often we should see your elderly pet or you’d like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (978) 283-8883.
