Loyal Senior Pets Deserve Special Care

senior pet care

We offer special care for your senior dogs and cats at Peninsula Center Pet Hospital. Personalized service for seniors focuses on enhancing quality of life through wellness care and early detection and treatment of disease.

Senior Pets Deserve Personal Attention

Pet health problems associated with aging can be lessened or even alleviated with early detection and treatment. Our intensive, personalized wellness program allows us to detect many problems before your aging pets experience pain or permanent damage to their health. Our on-site diagnostic laboratory and imaging technology gives our patients an edge in early detection.

Preventing Diseases in Senior Dogs & Cats

Mature pets face life-threatening diseases and conditions that affect the heart, kidney, and liver. Obesity and arthritis are two problems in seniors that can negatively impact quality of life. Any change in your pet’s behavior or physical appearance may be indicative of a serious health issue.

Biannual wellness exams and regular dental care are advised for senior pets. During those visits, we may perform blood work and a urinalysis. From this exam and lab work, we can determine if additional tests are necessary.

Vaccinations for Senior Pets

Vaccinations for your senior pet will be determined by their age, health status, and as recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association’s vaccination guidelines for dogs and cats.

Contact our hospital to discuss any changes in your senior pet between wellness visits.

Dr. Herrera and her staff have been so good to my grandmother and her dogs for the past 15 plus years. During the last days of one of her dogs, Dr. Peggy stayed with him even on the weekend before he passed to care for him and make him comfortable. And when grandma could no longer care for her last pup, Dr. Peggy kept him for her and adopted him out to a good home. There is not that many vets out there that would take the time to help an old lady find a loving home for their pet, but Dr. Peggy is special and cares about her patients. Dr. Herrera is TOPS in my book. Thanks for taking care of my grandma.
