Senior Dog Care

As your beloved friend gets older, preventative care is the best way to keep on top of changes in your dog’s health.

When is a dog considered a senior pet?

Generally, dogs that are 7 years of age and older are considered senior. However, this varies with size and breed.

How should I care for my senior dog? (example: schedule regular check-ups, exercise, special diet, etc.)

In addition to preventative care, we can monitor any changes with annual exams and bloodwork. We recommend scheduling an appointment with our team to chat about your senior pet’s specific needs as they grow into their golden years.
