Senior Care

With our help, your pet's golden years can be just as enjoyable and comfortable as their younger years.

Help them in their golden years

Because they age so much faster than humans, pets are generally considered “seniors” when they’re around seven years old. As your pet gets older, their diet, exercise, and health needs change, and regular visits to their veterinarian’s office become more important than ever before. Far too often, subtle signs of illness are mistaken for normal “slowing down” in aging pets, so it’s crucial to be mindful of changes and seek prompt veterinary care. At Lakeside Animal Hospital, we provide specialized senior care for pets in Plantation and would be honored to be entrusted with your dog or cat’s care in their golden years.

Caring for Your Senior Pet

Problems tend to develop quickly in older pets. However, with prompt veterinary care, many issues can be treated or managed. Our doctors recommend scheduling physical examinations at least every six months for your older pet, along with wellness blood work at least once per year. This allows us to monitor your furry friend’s health and detect signs of trouble before they become serious. We’ll also develop a nutrition plan that meets your pet’s changing nutritional needs and provide care for common age-related ailments like arthritis. 

If your pet has any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to contact us right away: 
  • Difficulty getting up after lying down
  • Intermittent vomiting
  • Weight gain or weight loss
While these problems are often considered “normal” parts of the aging process, they could indicate underlying health problems. Bringing your pet in for an exam enables our veterinarians to make recommendations and provide treatment to ensure your best friend’s comfort and maintain their quality of life.
