Senior Pet Care

older
We have a genuine affection for our older pets. We understand that they have special needs as they age. The problem is that often people attribute a lack of energy, alertness, and mobility problems to aging, when sometimes these are disease processes that can be reversed. We are constantly finding treatable conditions in our older patients that respond very rapidly to medications or other treatment modalities.

Dental Needs

It is surprising the number of cats and dogs in whose mouths we find significant pathology that is causing unknown pain. Dental problems in pets commonly lead to heart conditions. This is because of the bacteria in their mouths coursing through the blood and infecting the heart valves. Preventive dental care is one of the most significant life extenders for our older pets! Did you know that older wild cats and wolves die more from dental disease more than any other cause?

K-laser

We have recently added K-laser to our treatment options. This is a totally non-invasive, non-painful way of helping eliminate both chronic and acute pain in pets. It is very affordable and our clients enjoy being right there with their pets to help with the treatment. The sessions average 6 minutes per site.

Regenerative Medicine

We use regenerative medicine for young and older pets. The use of stem cells in degenerative arthritis, tendon, and joint problems has been a great addition to our practice. All of our doctors are credentialed for using stem cells. We have seen the majority of our stem cell cases respond extremely well.

Your Pet’s Senior Profile

Often, our older population has hidden disease that can be helped if detected early. We recommend a senior profile. The senior profile includes lab work and x-rays to give our doctors a more complete picture of your friend’s condition.

We took our German Shepherd, that is less than social, as a new patient. We have struggled trying to get an ear problem improved. Dr. Emily Benedict was awesome. She was patient and spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. We ended up having a minor surgery and it ended up being a little bit beyond closing time. We were never rushed by the staff. This was a much better experience for our pet and us than we were having at our last vet. This is a very nice large facility with drinks and snacks for us humans. I can highly recommend not only Dr. Benedict but the entire staff

I had a Bearded Dragon who was having trouble breathing and it was Saturday around 1:30 They were able to take my emergency in a half hour. Dr Joel sat with me and went over my Bearded Dragon's whole background and relayed new info I did not know. My dragon got oxygen and seems to be doing better. I feel if they didn't get me in that day my baby would not have made it. Thank You so much! Even tho it is 35 minutes away I may just switch to this vet because it is well worth the drive!

The employees are friendly and professional. My dogs are always well taken care of. When picking my dogs up I always receive a summary of their stay, and any problems if applicable. The facility is always clean. I am very happy with the services we have received over the years. Highly recommend.
