Growing old is not for the faint of heart! Detecting early signs of disease can slow the progression and increase quality of life for our elderly furry friends. Common issues that these pets face include arthritis (joints), kidney failure, cancer, and periodontal disease (oral). 

Did you know that cats are exceptionally adept at hiding pain? In fact, many owners confuse symptoms of arthritis with the normal slowdown expected with aging. Cats often become cranky, hiss, avoid petting, and even stop grooming themselves due to pain. 

There are many treatments available for arthritis that can help put a spring back in their step! 

In addition to a physical exam, we recommend geriatric blood screening to check internal organs such as liver and kidneys, and to help detect diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and hypothyroidism. 

Preventative medicine will increase the longevity and quality of life for your senior pet, allowing early disease treatment and minimizing costs associated with treating those diseases.
