Senior Pet Wellness

Keeping our pets healthy and around us for as long as possible is important to most people. Making sure that they are being cared for properly in their old age is essential. For those in the Brooklyn area, Clinton Hill Animal Clinic is a fantastic place to bring your senior pet.


What is Senior Pet Care Wellness and Preventative Care?

Senior pets do need special care to make sure that they are healthy, happy, and that their sunset years are the best they can possibly be. When it comes to senior pets most of your care is going to be preventative care to make sure that they do not get injured, to make sure that they have the food, exercise, and supplements or medication that they need to be as healthy as possible.

In many cases, senior pets do need a bit more care to make sure that they are feeling well and that they are not going to have any issues. Some problems that commonly affect older pets are issues with digestion, issues with joint pain and mobility, and even issues with vision. Senior pets still have a great deal of life in them and making sure that you do take them to the veterinarian for routine checkups and care can truly make a difference.

Why are Routine Exams for Senior Pet Care Important?

When it comes to senior pets there are some issues that you might not notice. Their slowing down might not be associated with age, it may be an underlying condition. Their inability or reluctance to eat might be due to some distress that they are in. With senior pets you may not notice when there is an issue and taking the time to take them to the vet and get them checked out with a veterinarian can help you to find the right care plan and make sure they are as happy as possible.

Senior Pets Need more Love

When a pet begins to age, they may not be able to see, they may not want to eat, and they may have problems that they simply cannot handle on their own. Taking the time to give your senior pets a bit more attention can help them to live their best life and get the most out of life. Senior pets, though they are at the end of their lives, still have so much love to give and it is important that you support them in any way possible.
