Senior Pet Care

Keeping Your Aging Companion Healthy

As your beloved furry friend ages, their healthcare needs evolve, requiring specialized attention and care. Del Valle Pet Hospital is here to support you in providing the best possible quality of life for your senior pet. We tailor our comprehensive senior pet care services to address each pet’s unique needs to ensure they remain happy, healthy, and comfortable in their golden years.

Regular Exams Are Key for Optimal Senior Pet Care

Regular veterinary checkups are crucial for senior pets. These visits allow our experienced veterinarians to monitor your pet’s health and detect potential issues before they become more serious. During senior pet care checkups, we may recommend the following:

  • Bloodwork: Comprehensive blood tests can provide valuable insights into your senior pet’s overall health. They help us identify conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, and liver disease, which are more prevalent in older pets.
  • Arthritis Management: Arthritis and joint problems can be especially challenging for older pets. We can recommend pain management options and therapies to improve your pet’s mobility and comfort.
  • Changing Nutritional Requirements: Senior pets may require a different balance of nutrients to support their aging bodies. We can recommend appropriate senior pet diets to keep them healthy and maintain an ideal weight.
  • Exercise and Activity: Older pets may need less strenuous exercise but still require mental stimulation and social interaction to stay engaged and happy.
  • Medication Management: If your senior pet has chronic health conditions, we’ll help you manage their medications to ensure they receive the proper care.
