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. Your veterinarian will recommend certain screening tests that can help provide an early diagnosis for some of the common diseases that affect older pets. Early diagnosis helps you and your veterinarian manage these 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 special care and testing is necessary because our pets age much faster than we do. Each year of an older animal’s life is roughly equivalent to four human years. Therefore, we need to do all we can to watch carefully for any developing problems on a regular basis. The earlier we find them, the more we can do to control these problems. 

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