Your pet's health care needs change as they age. Puppies and kittens have health needs that are different from adult and senior pets.
As puppies and kittens grow older, their health care needs change. Your pet enters their adult lives around the age of 1 and their senior years around the age of 7. Senior pets are at a high risk of developing diseases such as heart disease, cancer, endocrine disease, and arthritis. Preventative healthcare is very important for seniors as many of these diseases can be diagnosed before they affect your pet’s quality of life.
You can minimize disease symptoms in your senior pets, avoid unnecessary health risks, and prevent diseases with early detection. We recommend older pets be examined every 6 to 8 months; we can recommend diagnostic tools that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
