Geriatric Care

Your pet's latter years can be healthy and joyful.

As dogs and cats become older,

their bodies begin to slow down.
Like humans, they develop a greater predisposition to illness and uncomfortable conditions like osteoarthritis. All pets should get preventative care, but geriatric animals especially require frequent wellness checks. We would be happy to be trusted with your pet's care at Mariemont Veterinary Clinic if they need geriatric care in Cincinnati. Your pet's latter years can be just as comfortable, healthy, and joyful as their younger ones with our help.

Taking Care of Geriatric Pets

Animals age a lot quicker than people do. They are regarded as seniors by the time they are roughly seven years old. However, this change doesn't always take place at the exact same time. It may be time to consider geriatric care when you notice a decrease in energy or any other signs that they may be feeling the effects of aging.

For senior dogs, regular health examinations are essential. They provide us the chance to keep tabs on their ongoing health and enable us to spot diseases early and start treating them before they worsen. Additionally, we will collaborate with you to better understand how your pet's requirements change as they age. This could entail dietary adjustments, behavior modification, pain relief, etc.

During the examination of your elderly pet, we will likely advise routine bloodwork. This is because we can search for changes and early warning signals of some disorders by performing blood tests once a year (or even twice a year). We'll assess your pet's thyroid, liver, and kidney functions. These tests are crucial to the care of your older pet since they give us a wealth of information.
