Senior pet health services at the Elmhurst Animal Care Center blend general pet care with specialized services designed to benefit older animals. Basic offerings for senior pets include thorough physical examinations and boosters for all required vaccinations. More advanced senior pet care, meanwhile, includes comprehensive diagnostic testing, dental analysis, and advanced nutritional counseling.
Veterinarians can also discuss with owners of older pets pressing topics such as workable solutions for chronic pain and preventive steps that can be taken to mitigate future issues. Pet owners are urged to contact senior pet care specialists should an older dog or cat demonstrate sudden changes in eating patterns or behavior.
