Pet Geriatric Care

Older pets often have multiple chronic diseases, trouble with weight loss or gain, chronic pain, mobility problems, or cognitive issues, and need medications and other specialized support or care. We help address your pet’s changing needs and balance treatments for disease symptoms and progression.

Comprehensive Health Assessments
Our veterinarians conduct thorough wellness exams tailored to the specific needs of senior pets. Regular check-ups enable early detection and proactive management of age-related conditions.

Specialized diagnostic screenings, including bloodwork and imaging, help identify common geriatric issues such as arthritis, kidney disease, and dental problems, allowing for timely intervention.
