Senior Wellness Care

Senior Wellness Care

Their Golden Years Can Be the Greatest

We love senior pets at Lee Animal Hospital! These frosty-faced friends need a little extra care and attention to keep fit, and they’ve earned it. Our senior wellness care ensures your pet has as many healthy and happy years with you as possible. 

Make Seven their Lucky Number

We recommend semi-annual exams for all senior pets and routine bloodwork at least annually. Most pets are considered seniors at around the age of seven. This is about the time you should start thinking about senior care for your pet, but your veterinarian can advise you on when your specific pet is considered a senior. 

Our pets age faster than we do, and their health can change significantly in a relatively short period of time. Dietary, exercise, environmental, and other needs often shift when a pet ages, and we’ll help your furry friend’s golden years shine. Semi-annual exams and routine diagnostics allow us to closely monitor your senior pet’s health and detect (and potentially prevent) any issues while they’re still in their early stages. 

Common health concerns with senior pets include: 

  • Arthritis and mobility issues
  • Heat problems
  • Liver and kidney issues
  • Cognitive decline/behavioral problems
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid issues
  • Periodontal disease
