Our pets are living longer than ever! We consider ourselves "senior care specialists", and make it our mission to improve quality of life for all senior and geriatric pets. We assess each senior pet carefully, and examine for any changes.
Age-related changes may include:
Many of our senior pets benefit from specific daily exercises, designed to keep them strong and moving, while minimizing strain on arthritic joints. We offer rehabilitation/physical therapy consultations, as part of our comprehensive senior wellness care, to help improve quality of life.
Pain management is very important to us, not only in pets undergoing surgery, but in their daily lives. Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. Our pets tend to be very stoic, and hide their pain from us. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. Our doctors have a special interest in pain management, and have undergone advanced training to keep current with this rapidly evolving field. We strive to offer superior multi modal pain management for those pets suffering from chronic pain. We follow the 2015 Pain Management Guidelines for Dogs and Cats, recently published by the AAHA (American Animal Hospital Asssociation) and AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners).
