Senior Pet Care
Adjusting to your aging pets' needs
Thanks to advances in modern medicine in technology, Veterinarians are able to help pets live a happier and longer life possible. Routine health exams are especially important for our elderly pets, as they are not able to communicate any pain or discomfort they endure.
By working with our Upland pet vets, pet parents can expect:
- Regular vet visits can help detect and treat age-related health issues in elderly pets.
- Taking an elderly pet to the vet ensures that they receive proper preventive care, such as vaccinations and parasite control.
- Vet visits allow for early detection of potential illnesses or diseases, increasing the chances of successful treatment.
- Senior pets may require specialized diets or medications, which can be prescribed by a veterinarian during routine check-ups.
- The vet can provide guidance on managing common age-related conditions like arthritis or dental problems, improving the pet's quality of life.
- Regular check-ups enable veterinarians to monitor any changes in your pet's behavior or overall health, allowing for timely intervention if needed.
- Veterinary professionals can offer advice on appropriate exercise routines and mental stimulation activities for senior pets.
- Vets can administer pain management treatments to alleviate discomfort associated with aging.
- Consulting with a vet can ensure that your elderly pet remains comfortable and happy throughout their golden years.
