Thanks to many advances in pet care, senior cats and dogs are experiencing a greater quality of life. Nutrition, weight control, exercise, regular dental care, wellness care, disease and parasite prevention all contribute to a healthier, happier senior pet.
The most significant addition to senior pet care is the ability of veterinarians to detect developing problems at the earliest most treatable stage. Early disease detection is achieved through annual exams, lab tests, routine dental care, regular vaccinations and ongoing parasite prevention. These simple steps constitute a vast improvement in our approach to senior pet care and most importantly, allows your cat or dog to live a happier and healthier life.
