Senior Pet Care in Springfield
Helping Pets Feel Happy & Comfortable in Their Old Age
Significant advances have been made in addressing the needs of senior pets. Older pets, like older people, develop age-related changes resulting in heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney failure, hormonal imbalances like diabetes or hypothyroidism, arthritis, cancers, and depressed mental ability, to name a few. Many of the changes that occur in pets as they age are very gradual and can often be hard to detect. Veterinarians today are well equipped with the knowledge, products, and diagnostic tools needed to identify these problems and develop strategies that allow pets to live longer and richer lives.
Early detection of these age-related changes is critical to for improving length and quality of life. Often, we assume our older pets are "slowing down" simply because they are older, when they may in fact be uncomfortable due to joint pain or anemic due to kidney disease. When the specific problems are treated, it can be very rewarding to see the improvement.
