Pet Geriatric CareHeading
A dog or cat’s year is comparable to five to seven human years, thus it’s imperative that your pet have a checkup at least once a year. By the age of seven, he or she is considered a senior member of the community, therefore more frequent checkups are advised. Because pets age more quickly and live shorter lives than humans, a pet’s health can change significantly in a relatively short period of time.
Aging has an impact on both people and animals. Additionally, there are normal changes in physiology, anatomy, and behavior. The staff at 2nd Avenue Animal Hospital will keep a close eye on your senior pet’s ophthalmic, cardiovascular, and orthopedic health.
