Geriatric Care

 

Geriatric / Senior Care

When is a pet considered senior? It depends upon the breed/size and age of the pet. Most pets are considered to be seniors after 7 years of age. Just like human senior citizens get regular check ups including blood tests, ECGs, chest X-Rays, arthritis checks, prostate checks, etc. our senior pets also need such monitoring and tests. Based on the diagnostic test results, early intervention in their ‘silent' conditions will make their lives healthier, happier, and longer. There are excellent drugs available for such senior pet conditions as heart disease, asthma, arthritis, decreased mental acuity, incontinence, muscle weakness, etc.

 

We look forward to the opportunity to serve our senior furry friends.
