Considering Geriatric Pet Care

Geriatric pet care should be considered for pets entering their senior years, typically around the age of 7 for dogs and 10 for cats. It’s important to seek geriatric care for your pet if:

  • Your pet is experiencing changes in behavior, appetite, or mobility
  • You notice signs of pain or discomfort, such as limping or difficulty rising
  • Your pet has been diagnosed with a chronic health condition that requires ongoing management
