Senior Pet Care

We'll make every effort to maintain your pet's health and comfort during their senior years.

As pets age, their needs change.
Like humans, they tend to become less energetic as well as more prone to certain health issues when they get older. But they don’t have to suffer from disease and pain in their older years. At The Colony Animal Clinic, we specialize in providing senior pet care in The Colony so that your pet may enjoy their later years in peace and health.

Taking Care of Older Pets

Compared to their younger counterparts, older animals are more prone to arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues. The precise age at which a pet turns senior varies depending on a number of factors, but on average, they are regarded as "seniors" after they are around seven years old.

Older animals tend to slow down, so adjusting their diet is essential. If you don't change your furry friend's diet as they get older, obesity and other issues become more likely. In order to track their health, seniors also require periodic blood tests and wellness checkups twice a year. It might be difficult to tell if a dog or cat is ill or merely aging normally, so having regular examinations is important. After all, you want to spend as much time as possible with your cherished pet.
