Senior pet care

Older pets have special needs and this is when carers should consider increasing the frequency of health checks to every six months. This allows any potential problems to be picked up early and addressed, ensuring a high quality of life for your pet.

Blood tests and urine tests can pick up low level conditions that may not be obvious on a general examination, and we can help address senior problems such as arthritis before they become too advanced and debilitating for our senior patients.

Lumps and bumps are more likely to develop in older pets and it is important that these are monitored and/or investigated in case they develop into malignant cancers.
