Geriatric Cat & Dog Care for Senior Pets

To help them maintain a good quality of life as they age, senior pets need routine preventive veterinary care and early diagnosis throughout their golden years.

Diligent care can help extend your pet's life and good health as they age, so they must attend regularly scheduled wellness exams, even if they seem healthy. 

Our geriatric vets are here to help senior pets in Madison achieve optimal health by identifying and treating emerging health issues early and providing proactive treatment while they can still be managed.

Typical Geriatric Pet Health Problems

Due to improved dietary options and better veterinary care, companion cats and dogs are living far longer today than they have in the past. 

While this is certainly something to be celebrated, pet owners and veterinarians are now dealing with more age-related conditions than in the past.

Senior pets are typically prone to these conditions:

Geriatric Pet Care for Cats & Dogs

Our geriatric vets will thoroughly examine your senior pet and ask detailed questions about their home life.

We recommend that all pets over the age of 6 years have our senior bloodwork package in addition to standard diagnostics. This test will allow us to detect issues with liver and kidney disease as your companion becomes older, and more at-risk of developing serious conditions in those organs.

Based on the findings, we'll recommend a treatment plan that can potentially include medications, activities, and dietary changes that may help improve your senior pet's health, well-being, and comfort. 

Routine Wellness Exams

Preventive care is critical for your senior pet's health and happiness. It also allows our veterinarians to detect diseases earlier.

Early detection will help preserve your pet's health and catch emerging health issues before they develop into long-term problems.

With regular physical exams, your pet will have the best chance of long-term health.
