Understanding Senior Pet Wellness

Senior pets, typically those seven years and older, undergo various physical and behavioral changes as they age. These changes may include decreased mobility, changes in appetite, dental issues, and an increased risk of developing chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, and kidney disease. Our senior pet wellness care in Plano, TX, focuses on proactive measures to maintain their health and quality of life as they enter their golden years.

Our Senior Pet Wellness Services

Comprehensive Health Assessment

Our senior pet wellness exams thoroughly evaluate your pet’s overall health, focusing on identifying any underlying health issues or concerns.

Diagnostic Testing

We offer advanced diagnostic testing, including blood work, urinalysis, and imaging studies, to assess your senior pet’s organ function, detect early signs of disease, and monitor ongoing health conditions.

Nutritional Counseling

Proper nutrition is essential for maintaining your senior pet’s health and vitality. Our veterinarians provide personalized nutritional counseling to ensure your pet receives the appropriate diet and supplements tailored to their age, breed, and health status.

Pain Management

Many senior pets experience chronic pain due to arthritis, dental issues, or other age-related conditions. We offer various pain management options, including medications, supplements, and therapeutic treatments, to alleviate discomfort and improve your pet’s quality of life.

Preventive Care

Preventive care measures, such as vaccinations, parasite control, and dental cleanings, protect your senior pet against infectious diseases and maintain their overall well-being.

When to Schedule a Senior Pet Wellness Exam

We recommend scheduling a senior pet wellness exam at least twice a year to monitor your pet’s health and address any age-related concerns promptly. However, if you notice any changes in your senior pet’s behavior, appetite, mobility, or overall condition, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment.
