Senior Pet Wellness Care and Its Importance

As your pet ages, his or her health and wellness needs inevitably change. For example, a senior pet may have a harder time maintaining a healthy weight than a younger pet, so you may be encouraged to change your pet's diet to something with more calories and/or protein. As your pet approaches senior age (this specific age can vary from one type of pet to the next), it also becomes more important to schedule routine health and wellness exams. Whereas it may have been enough to bring your pet in for a wellness exam once a year when he or she was younger, you should now be coming in for more frequent exams twice a year or more.

Staying on top of senior wellness care is a must not just for prolonging your beloved pet's life, but maintaining his or her quality of life as well. Our veterinary team is here for you to provide all the services your aging pet needs to stay as happy and healthy as possible.

Reasons to Schedule a Senior Wellness Exam

Has it been more than six months since the last time your senior pet had a wellness exam? If so, then it's time to schedule one in our office. These more frequent exams allow us to stay on top of even the smallest of changes in your pet's health. During these exams, we can also make recommendations for any disease screenings or additional services that may be needed to optimize your pet's health. And of course, these exams offer a great opportunity for you as a pet owner to bring up any questions or concerns you may have to our veterinary team.

As part of your senior pet's wellness exam, we can also make sure that your pet is up to date on all vaccines as well.
