Senior Pet Care in Tracy, Ca
Our pets are our family and as we age, they age as well. The older they get the more care they need. We understand this at Paws & Claws so we want your pet to get regular checkups as they age. Preventative care is the best solution to keeping your pet healthy throughout its life. Pet screenings help catch diseases and ailments early so they don’t become a serious sickness later in your pet’s life.
We recommend increased wellness exams starting at 7 years. Preventive care is about watching out for diseases pets are more susceptible to as they age. Diabetes is amongst the most common and most difficult to detect. Like human diabetes, without proper treatment, it can be deadly.
There are several age-related illnesses to look for. These include:
- Kidney Disease
- Gum Disease
- Vision Impairment
Oftentimes pet owners are not sure how old their pet is since they may have come from the human society without papers, or may have been a stray. In these cases we need to watch for symptoms that can be a sign of the above mentioned ailments.
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Excessive drinking
- Overactive bladder
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums
- Skin growths
We want your pet to lead a happy and healthy life. Call Paws & Claws to schedule an appointment today.
