Fortunately, the team at Loveland Regional Animal Hospital is here to walk you through what to expect as your pet ages. We offer senior pet wellness care specifically tailored to ensure your pet’s senior years are golden.

The Importance of Senior Wellness Care

We consider pets aged 7 and older to be considered seniors and recommend bringing your senior dog or cat to our animal hospital at least twice at year. These exams will enable our team to perform a comprehensive exam, vaccinations, and regular lab testing to keep you informed about your pet’s health. As they age, pets become vulnerable to developing serious health problems, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Liver disease
  • Certain types of cancer

Keeping Senior Pets Happy and Healthy

Although frequent wellness exams are the best way to maintain your senior pet’s quality of life, there are a few other ways to help ensure your dog or cat’s senior years are golden:

  • MOBILITY AIDS – Providing mobility aids such as rugs to improve traction around the house or ramps to reach a comfy couch or bed
  • EXERCISE – Taking your senior pet for walks and offering opportunities for regular exercise can enhance their mood and prevent weight gain
  • COMFORTABLE BEDDING – Supplying a comfy, supportive bed for your senior pet to rest at night or during the day 
  • HEALTHY DIET – Feeding senior pets a healthy diet through food created specifically for their age range
  • CAREFUL MONITORING – Keeping a close eye on your senior pets for any changes in behavior including eating, drinking, sleeping or bathroom habits, and letting your vet know at your bi-annual wellness appointment
