Caring for Your Beloved Senior Pet

Our mission is to glorify God by providing high quality veterinary care to pet-patients, and extending this care to our senior pets is of special importance to us.

Understanding Senior Pet Needs

Senior pets have embarked on a remarkable journey, and their well-being hinges on a variety of factors, including their breed, genetics, living environment, exercise routines, and nutrition. As pet parents, it’s essential to recognize that senior pet care demands a specialized approach.

Guidance for Pet Parents

As your beloved pet enters their golden years, regular check-ups and a proactive approach to their well-being becomes even more important. Senior pets thrive under the care of a pet parent who understands their unique needs, including a special diet tailored to their age and health status.

Conditions that Affect Senior Pets

Numerous diseases and health conditions can impact senior pets differently. Our veterinary team is well-equipped to identify these issues and provide accurate diagnoses. Through a personalized treatment plan, we aim to enhance your pet’s quality of life. Some common conditions and behavioral changes to watch for include:

Westwood Pet Care can work with you to determine the best diet for your senior pet.
