At North Alabama Animal Hospital, we provide care for your pet through all stages of life. Since pets age faster than we do, it’s easy to forget that they can be considered seniors after just seven years. And as they get older, their health needs change in unique ways that require proper consideration.
As your pet enters their “golden years,” we want to focus on catching changes early. We have senior wellness plans that focus on kidney, liver, bladder, and metabolic health. We perform a complete nose-to-tail exam and recommend yearly blood work, urinalysis, intestinal parasite screens and heartworm screens that are tailored to your pet’s individual needs. We discuss each pet’s personalized plan yearly and make recommendations as they continue to age.
As a pet owner, you want to make sure your pet has the highest quality of life as they age. With proper care, they may even get more time to spend with you and your family.
