SENIOR PET CARE

Annual preventative care is even more important for senior animals to prevent or delay the diseases that older animals are more prone to, such as osteoarthritis, hormone disorders, organ failure, cancer, and disease of the kidney, heart, and liver. Animals age at a rate of five to seven times that of humans, so regular wellness visits are strongly recommended to make sure that all of your pet’s healthcare needs are being met.

 

According to the American Animal Hospital Association, the following warning signs could indicate a problem that should be addressed by a veterinarian as soon as possible:

 

 ▪ Sudden weight loss or weight gain

 ▪ Significant decrease or increase in appetite

 ▪ Failure to eat for more than two days

 ▪ Noticeable decrease in vision

 ▪ Increasing inactivity or time spent sleeping

 ▪ Excessive panting

 ▪ Hair loss, especially if accompanied by scratching in a localized area

 ▪ Seizures or convulsing

 

At Collar City Animal Hospital, we offer programs that are tailored specifically for the needs of senior dogs and senior cats including a complete blood count, urinalysis, blood-chemistry panel, and parasite evaluation. Our veterinarians can also suggest specially formulated food for your pet, whose changing nutritional needs will benefit from an adjusted diet. Keeping your pet active is also helpful in slowing the deterioration of senses associated with the aging process. Please speak with our veterinarians to learn more about keeping your senior pet healthy.
