Senior Care for Pets
Since our pets age at a faster rate than humans, we recommend an exam every six months after your pet reaches the age 7 in order to help them live a longer, happier life. Good senior pet healthcare requires attention to several factors:
Diet and weight management
Early disease detection blood and urine tests
Function of thyroid, kidneys, and liver
Eye and vision health
Pain management discussion
Regular exams and testing allow us to determine what is normal for your pet, and knowing these results helps us detect any abnormalities early. An early diagnosis is crucial to your pet’s health and may also greatly reduce treatment costs. Contact us at Avondale Animal Hospital for both puppy and kitten care and senior pet care. We are centrally located in Birmingham, Alabama.
