Senior Veterinary Care for Beloved Greenville Pets
As our pets age, their bodies change and the care they need changes, too. When our pets enter their senior years, they need to be seen by the veterinarian more often in order to catch any developing health problems early.
When Is a Pet Considered a Senior?
Different breeds of dogs age at different rates, depending mostly on size. Large dogs will need senior care sooner than small dogs. Typically, cats will live longer than small dogs.
If you have taken in a stray or a rescue it may be a bit of a mystery as to how old your pet is. Our veterinarians will use multiple factors to help determine the age of your pet. It is important to work with your veterinarian to determine when your pet has reached the age when senior care is needed.
Diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, kidney disease, and heart disease can be a stressful and worrisome diagnosis that we see with some senior pets. Our veterinarians and staff will use our best diagnostics and treatments to help you and your pet manage and thrive through their disease.
Diet and Exercise

Consult with us regarding the type of food you are letting your senior dog or cat enjoy. And, let us know what a typical day is like for your old friend. We can advise on dietary habits and play levels that just may be what makes the final years golden years.
