Senior Pet Care

To help them maintain a good quality of life as they age, senior pets need routine preventive veterinary care and early diagnosis throughout their golden years.

Diligent care can help extend your pet's life and good health as they age, so they must attend regularly-scheduled wellness exams, even if they seem healthy. 

Our veterinarians are here to help geriatric pets in Southgate achieve optimal health by identifying and treating emerging health issues early, and providing proactive treatment while they are still easily managed.

Typical Health Problems

Due to improved dietary options and better veterinary care, companion cats and dogs are living far longer today than they have in the past. 

While this is certainly something to be celebrated, pet owners and veterinarians now face more age-related conditions than they did in the past as well.

Senior pets are typically prone to the following conditions:

Veterinary Care for Seniors

Our vets will thoroughly examine your senior pet, ask about their home life in detail and perform any tests that may be required to receive additional insight into his or her general physical health and condition. 

Based on the findings, we'll recommend a treatment plan that can potentially include medications, activities, and dietary changes that may help improve your senior pet's health, well-being, and comfort. 

End-of-Life Care

Our vets bring decades of skill and expertise in veterinary care to help you develop a customized and compassionate end-of-life plan.

And, on the sad day that you lose your beloved pet, we are here for you as well. We partner with Faithful Companion Cremation Services to help make this difficult process as comforting and stress-free as possible.
