Did you know that pets age faster than people and can be considered “seniors” after 7 years of age and older? Just as our health care needs change as we age, your pet’s healthcare needs also change. Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life, but especially so in their senior years. Nutritional needs, exercise habits, and many aspects of your pet’s daily routine can change as your pet ages. Early detection blood work and other routine diagnostic testing may be recommended by your veterinarian.
Older pets make wonderful companions, and thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, pets are living longer than ever! You are an important ally in your senior pet’s health care and we can work together to make their senior years golden years!
