Geriatric Medicine

Our older patients are some of our favorites. With good care, many of our seniors are active and content well into their old age. Semi-annual exams and appropriate lab work are often recommended to catch changes early on.

More than ever, we need your eyes at home to recognize the subtle changes that might signal pain or sickness. A shift in appetite or a change in behavior, for instance, is valuable information for us to assess and use in treating your pet.

And as with humans, extra weight is hard on aging bodies. Regular moderate activity is recommended to preserve your pet’s physical as well as emotional health.
