As your cat ages, normal changes take place and diseases may follow that can often affect their overall health, well-being and comfort. Many conditions, when detected early and treated properly, can be prevented from progressing into more serious and sometimes life-threatening illnesses. Our goal is for you and your family cat to enjoy the longest, healthiest life together.
We recommend seeing your senior cat every 6 months so we can monitor his or her health, detect, diagnose, treat, and control any medical conditions before they progress into serious problems. We encourage our clients to take an active role in combating ailments associated with the aging process that may affect their cat.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, we recommend that you schedule an appointment to discuss them with our veterinarian.
As your cat gets older, it is important to minimize stress with a comfortable lifestyle. There are many ways to make small adjustments in your cat’s life to keep them comfortable as they age.
A proper diet and plenty of exercise can also help your senior cat stay healthy. Good nutrition and exercise will help your cat maintain a healthy weight and to prevent conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. Regular play and exercise will also keep their mind sharp and strengthen the bond you share!
