Senior Wellness - Pet First Animal Hospital


Discovering disease and illness early is always best, but it becomes even more crucial when your dog or cat enters his or her senior years.  The risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age.  In addition, dogs and cats may not show any signs of even serious diseases until they are quite advanced.  A good rule of thumb is to have your pet seen by a veterinarian on a regular basis to monitor and heal conditions before they become incurable or fatal.  Pets age much faster than humans, so routine veterinary exams are one of the ideal things that you can do to help your senior pet live a healthy life that is full of quality.

We can treat many symptoms that are commonly attributed to age, including those associated with cognitive dysfunction syndrome (similar to Alzheimer's in humans).  We can also improve your pet's quality of life in many ways: by identifying and preventing or reducing pain, recommending an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan, and suggesting environmental modifications to keep your pet comfortable.

We will tailor a senior wellness plan to your pet's individual needs.  If you have any questions, we would be happy to discuss our senior wellness program in more detail.  Call us today to schedule your pet's exam (941)753-2995.

Taking care of your senior pets is very important!  Dr. Taylor, our veterinarian at Pet First Animal Hospital will make sure your pets are on track to live a quality filled life! grey cat
