Tips on Caring For Your Senior Pet From Your Trusted Memphis Veterinarian

Here at PetVax Complete Care Centers, our goal is to provide your pets with the highest level of veterinary care so they can lead long, happy, and healthy lives. As a pet owner, it's important to understand that the level of care your pet requires will change as your pet ages. We want our clients in Bartlett and the surrounding areas to be well-informed. Specifically, there are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to caring for a senior pet.

Caring for a Senior Pet With Help From A Memphis Veterinarian

One of the biggest changes you may need to make with your senior dog or senior cat is that of dietary and nutritional changes. As your pet gets older, its body may need different nutrients to help it stay healthy. Our vets can recommend specific brands and food formulas to ensure your pet is getting the proper daily nutrition. For many pets, this may include switching to a senior formula.

In addition to making sure your senior pet is getting the right nutrients, it's also important to start bringing your pet into the vet for specialized senior wellness exams. During these exams, we can check for and test (if necessary) for diseases that are common among senior pets. So, rather than your pet's current annual wellness exam, we may recommend a twice-annual senior exam to keep your pet healthy and well.

PetVax Complete Care Centers is also proud to offer senior pet wellness programs to those in Bartlett and the surrounding areas at all five of our Memphis area locations. To keep your aging pet healthy and active in their golden years, ask about pet programs today. Specifically, our programs for senior pets include annual exams, diagnostic panels, and even nutritional counseling. Our goal with these programs is to more closely monitor your pet's health so we can be alert of any problematic changes from year to year.
