Senior Pet Wellness in Keller, TX

Pets aged 7 and older are considered senior pets, and therefore will need to be seen more frequently as they become more vulnerable to illness, chronic conditions, and diseases. Scheduling wellness exams more often allows our team to detect issues sooner and help prevent more serious disease from affecting your senior dog or cat.

Why Is Senior Wellness Care So Important?

Our pets age more rapidly than we do. That is why we recommend bringing your senior dog or cat in for an exam at least twice a year. We will administer any necessary vaccines and perform lab testing. As your pet ages, they are more vulnerable to disease or developing a chronic condition including:

  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Certain types of cancer

How to Make Your Pet’s Senior Years Golden

In addition to regular wellness exams, there are several ways you can provide the best possible senior pet care and help your pet ease into their golden years:

  • MOBILITY AIDS – As your pet ages, it may be more difficult for them to get around. You can use rugs to improve traction on slippery floors and provide ramps for easy access to raised areas such as a bed or couch.
  • EXERCISE – All pets can benefit from regular exercise, but senior pets benefit from exercise by maintaining their mobility, improving their mood, and preventing weight gain.
  • COMFY BEDDING – A soft and supportive bed can provide an extra comfortable spot for senior pets to rest.
  • HEALTHY DIET – It is especially important for older pets to maintain a healthy diet to ensure good digestion and a healthy caloric intake.
  • CAREFUL MONITORING – If there is a change in your pet’s eating, drinking, sleeping or bathroom habits, be sure to let your vet know. These changes may signal a change in their health.

Get the best care for your best friend.
