Senior Care

Senior Care

Cats are very good at hiding ailments and by the time symptoms have started to show, their ailments can be in a stage of rapid progression. Cats are considered “senior” at the age of 7 and something as simple as weight loss or increased water consumption could indicate an underlying issue. It is very important to have your feline friends checked routinely as a form of preventative care. Many feline diseases are often treatable, especially if they are caught early! Please refer to our guidelines for recommended health care for each life stage of your feline companion and give us a call if you have any questions or concerns. Let us help you foster a long and healthy relationship with your feline companion.
