Geriatric Care for Senior Dogs & Cats

To help them maintain a good quality of life as they continue to age, senior pets need routine preventive veterinary care and early diagnosis throughout their golden years.

Diligent care can help extend your pet's life and good health as they age, so it's important that they attend regularly scheduled wellness exams, even if they seem healthy. 

Our veterinarians are here to help geriatric pets in Mamaroneck achieve optimal health by identifying and treating emerging health issues early, and providing proactive treatment while we can still effectively and easily manage them. 

Geriatric Care for Pets, Mamaroneck

Typical Health Problems

Due to improved dietary options and better veterinary care, companion cats and dogs are living far longer today than they have in the past. 

While this is certainly something to be celebrated, pet owners and veterinarians now face more age-related conditions than they did in the past as well.

Senior pets are typically prone to the following conditions:

  • Joint or bone disorders 
  • Cancer 
  • Heart disease 
  • Blindness and hearing loss
  • Liver disease 
  • Diabetes 
  • Kidney disease 
  • Urinary tract disease 

Veterinary Care for Seniors

Our veterinarians will thoroughly examine your senior pet, ask about their home life in detail and perform any tests that may be required to receive additional insight into his or her general physical health and condition. 

Based on the findings, we'll recommend a treatment plan that can potentially include medications, activities and dietary changes that may help improve your senior pet's health, well-being and comfort. 

Routine Wellness Exams

Preventive care is essential to helping your senior pet live a healthy, happy and fulfilled life. It also gives our veterinarians the opportunity to detect diseases early. 

Early detection of disease will help preserve your pet's physical health and catch emerging health issues before they develop into long-term problems.

With regular physical examinations, your pet will have the best chance at quality long-term health.
