Is My Cat a Senior Citizen?

Welcome to your cat’s golden years!

The years you have ahead of you may be the closest that you and your cat will experience. For our more “mature” loved ones, it is important to be educated so that you both can live happier, healthier lives.

Weight, nutrition, pain, and organ diseases are our main concerns when caring for senior pets. Controlling your cat’s weight and pain, and detecting organ disease early will help ensure a comfortable, happy quality of life for your cat.

Care Recommendations for Your Senior Cat

Bi-Annual Basic Senior Wellness & Consultation

The health of a senior cats can change a lot during 6 months. Diseases can develop and spread a lot quicker in a mature cat. We recommend an exam and consultation every six months.

Annual Blood and Urine Test

Annual blood and urine tests for early detection of chronic diseases such as kidney disease, thyroid disease and diabetes is the key to successful treatment and quality of life.

Track Weight

Weigh your cat on the same scale and record the results at least every two months. Changes in weight can be an early indicator of disease.
