Thanks to advancements in veterinary medicine, companion animals can now enjoy longer and healthier lives. However, as pets age, their healthcare needs evolve, resulting in the need for extra attention and specialized care. At The Corner Vet, our geriatric pet care services are tailored to meet the unique needs of animals in their golden years.

Typically, cats are considered to be seniors by the age of 11, while dogs reach this stage at 7 years old. Regular physical exams and routine diagnostic testing are essential at this stage to detect any age-related issues promptly. This proactive approach enables our veterinarians to address potential concerns more effectively.

Common conditions affecting senior pets include:

  • Arthritis 
  • Obesity 
  • Diabetes 
  • Dementia
  • Thyroid imbalances
  • Behavioral changes 
  • Mobility issues
  • Kidney, heart, and liver disease
  • Tumors and cancer 

Thankfully, many of these issues can be prevented or at least well-managed when they detected early, which is why regular checkups are so critical.

As your pet enters their golden years, we can incorporate additional medical services into their care, including senior blood screening, pain management using multimodal therapy, arthritis/joint therapy, and supplementation.

The team at The Corner Vet is dedicated to partnering with you in ensuring your seasoned pet enjoys a vibrant and fulfilling life. Contact us today to schedule a geriatric evaluation and provide your pet with the care they deserve in their later years.
