Helping Your Older Pet Stay Spry with Special Senior Health Care

Our goal is to help your pet live a long, healthy, happy life. So we pay particular attention to meeting the special health needs of older pets. As with people, it’s important for your pet to receive the right care as it ages. We recommend that older pets see us regularly for:

  • cat-care-shea-animal-hospitalWellness testing.  Our goal is to spot potential health problems early on, before your pet even exhibits symptoms, so we have more treatment options and better outcomes. To achieve that goal, we recommend routine wellness testing, which can include a CBC (complete blood count), biochemistry profile, urinalysis and thyroid hormone testing.
  • Healthy Lifestyle. We offer a range of specialized food and dietary supplements for older pets with special health concerns.
  • Coping with Changes.  Your pet’s behavior might change with age as it copes with problems like hearing loss, arthritis or frequent toileting accidents in the house. Our medical team will answer your questions and provide helpful suggestions so you can navigate the new challenges your pet may experience.

Shea Animal Hospital is dedicated to helping your pet live a healthy, happy life. Please contact us today with your questions or concerns, or to schedule an exam.

Did You Know…

Cats, unlike dogs, do not learn tricks to win your approval. Cats can be taught to perform tasks such as retrieving toys and jumping through hoops – but it may take patience and perseverance…and quite a few yummy treats for your feline.
