As your senior pet transitions into their golden years, maintaining regular preventive care and early detection of potential issues is vital to ensure they enjoy a fulfilling life. Regular wellness check-ups are essential, even if your pet seems perfectly healthy, as they can extend both the quality and longevity of their life. Our St. Louis veterinary team is committed to supporting older pets by identifying and addressing health concerns promptly and offering proactive solutions for manageable conditions.


Typical Health Problems

The progress in dietary choices and veterinary care has contributed to longer lifespans for our beloved cats and dogs. While this is a welcome trend, it also signifies that pet owners and veterinarians are increasingly facing age-associated health challenges. As our pets grow older, they become more prone to various conditions such as:

  • Joint or bone disorders

  • Cancer

  • Heart disease

  • Blindness and hearing loss

  • Liver disease

  • Kidney disease

  • Diabetes

  • Urinary tract disease

  • Muscle atrophy

  • Periodontal disease


Veterinary Care for Seniors

Our veterinary team conducts a comprehensive assessment of elderly pets, which involves discussing their home setting with you and performing relevant tests to ascertain their physical state and holistic well-being. Based on the insights from these evaluations, we'll devise a tailored care plan that might encompass medications, dietary changes, and exercises designed to bolster your pet's health and well-being.
