Geriatric Medicine

Our hospital offers Geriatric (Senior Wellness) Medicine Services for your older pet.

When your pet reaches his or her "golden years" they require special care and your veterinarian will recommend certain screening tests. The tests enable your veterinarian to provide an early diagnosis for some of the common diseases that affect older pets, so that they can manage those diseases more effectively. In addition to this testing, twice-yearly examinations will be recommended to ensure your pet receives the best care as he or she ages.

This is because each year of an older animal's life is roughly equivalent to 4 human years. Our pets age much faster than we do. Therefore, we need to do all we can to watch carefully and frequently for any developing problems. The earlier we find them, the more we can do to control these problems.

If your pet is already facing an illness or disability that can come with old age, your veterinarian will work with you to maintain the highest quality of life for your pet.
