Senior Cat Care
The best care for your cat's senior years
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.
- Behavioral Changes in senior cats. Is your cat just getting older or is there something wrong?
- Arthritis in Cats. Getting older doesn’t have to be painful.
- Signs of Common Diseases found in senior pets
What is your cat’s “real” age?
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.
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.
