As pets age, obtaining examinations for them becomes increasingly important. A number of diseases common to the aging process can be treated more effectively when diagnosed early. Beginning in middle age, we recommend senior wellness examinations every six months so that disease processes can be detected and treated as soon as possible.
Arthritis is common in cats and dogs. Similar to people, arthritis in animals can be painful, restrictive to movement and can seriously impact on quality of life. Treatment options in the form of medications or supplements can have a dramatic effect on the discomfort caused by sore, swollen joints. You may see your old dog acting like a young pup again with the right arthritis treatment.
Common senior dog diseases include : cancer, arthritis, diabetes, endocrinopathies
Common senior cat diseases include: hyperthyroidism, diabetes, renal disease, cancer, athritis
Our pets don’t tell us when they are in pain – so we have to look out for them and take care to provide the most comfort we can in their latter years.
