Compassion Vet Hospital started in 2006 to provide the finest animal doctor veterinary care in Bradford, NH. It’s challenging to comprehend the care kittens and puppies will need once they grow old. Especially when your pets pass their fifth or sixth year, most pet parents start to realize their furry friends will grow old. Our pet doctors can help you build a care plan for pets of any age to ensure they will be around to love.
Senior Pet Care
The best time to start planning for old age is when they are a puppy or kitten, but the next best time is now. Even if you’ve been putting off that phase of animal life cycle planning because you didn’t think of it or it was too much to consider. It’s never the wrong time to start working with us to build a care plan for your animals that will sustain them through their old age.
Dogs and cats live much shorter lives than humans. A dog or cat we get when we’re 35 or 40 will probably age and pass away during our lifetimes. It’s essential to ensure that your dogs and cats get the best senior pet care you can give them during their time with you.
Geriatric medicine veterinarians recommend having veterinary visits twice a year once your pet reaches middle age. Then, if any health issues arise, we can build a plan to address them before they become too serious.
Healthy Lifestyles for Senior Pets
Senior pets will need to be kept up on their vaccinations. In addition, keeping nails trimmed regularly is a crucial health care step for dogs because dog foot health is vital for canine quality of life. A dog whose nails are not routinely cut can cause severe foot problems. This pain and pressure occur when they push their toes out of alignment.
We can ensure your animal gets regular blood and urine tests evaluated annually to see what’s happening under the skin. Then, you can take simple activities to save your pet from pain and difficulty, like regular brushing for a longhaired dog or cat.
