Compared to younger pets, senior pets are at higher risk for diseases and chronic conditions. This means that older pets need special care in order to stay healthy and maintain good quality of life. As your pet's veterinarian in North Austin and Pflugerville, we can help you take care of your senior pet. We offer advice to pet owners. We also offer preventative care for senior pets in our community.
You may need to adjust your pet care habits as your pet ages. Some of the things pet owners need to do to care for their older pets include:
At Dessau Veterinary Clinic, we recommend that all senior pets come in to the vet's office for checkups every six months. We'll check your pet for chronic conditions, and help ensure that your pet is healthy. We'll also keep your pet up to date on vaccinations, to help your senior pet resist illness and disease.
As your pet's veterinarian, we're committed to the task of keeping your senior pet healthy. To find out more about healthcare for older pets, contact us today for an appointment at (512) 339-3177.
