Senior pets are generally defined as those who are 7 years of age or older for dogs, and 9 years of age or older for cats.
As your pets age, their needs change, and they require extra care and attention to stay healthy and comfortable. We offer comprehensive senior pet care at Davis Veterinary Service to help your furry friends enjoy their golden years.
Regular check-ups are essential for senior pets, as they may be at risk for a range of age-related health issues such as arthritis, diabetes, kidney disease, and cognitive decline. Our veterinarians can perform a thorough physical exam and recommend any necessary testing or treatment to ensure your pet stays healthy.
Nutrition is also a crucial part of senior pet care. Older pets may have different nutritional requirements than younger pets, and it’s important to choose a diet that meets their needs. Our veterinarians can provide guidance on the best diet for your pet and recommend any necessary supplements.
Regular exercise is another important aspect of senior pet care. Exercise can help keep your pet’s joints healthy, maintain muscle mass, and keep them mentally stimulated. Our team can help you develop an exercise plan tailored to your pet’s needs and abilities.
Finally, dental care is critical for senior pets. As they age, dental problems can become more common, leading to pain, infection, and other health issues. We offer dental cleanings and other dental procedures to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy.
At Davis Veterinary Service, we understand the importance of senior pet care, and we are here to help you give your pets the care and attention they need as they age. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and learn more about our senior pet care services.
