Geriatric Care

dog geriatric

Dogs and cats age at a much more accelerated rate than humans. By the age of seven, they are classified as seniors! With age can come arthritis, dental disease, heart disease and increased risk for cancers and endocrine diseases such as diabetes, hypothryoidism and cushings disease.

As a pet owner, it is very important for you to know when to begin screening your pet for signs of geriatric diseases. Large breed dogs age more quickly than small breed dogs. Lifestyle affects pets just like it does humans- regular exercise and weight control are two of the easy things that can be controlled to slow the aging process. We work with a large population of senior pets and can help pet owners to keep their pets healthy and enjoying a good quality of life well into their senior years.
