Recent advances in veterinary medicine have helped our pets live longer than ever before. However, with an increased life span comes an increase in the types of problems that can affect senior pets.
It's important to remember that cats age faster than we do; a seven-year-old cat is roughly equivalent to a 50-year-old person. We can detect diseases that affect older animals through lab tests such as a complete blood count (CBC), a chemistry panel, urinalysis, and a fecal test. We’ll discuss all results with you and determine if further testing is needed.
Pets' age-related conditions and diseases include:
- weight and mobility changes
- kidney, heart and liver diseases
- tumors and cancers
- hormone disorders such as diabetes and thyroid imbalance
- changes in behavior or energy
- and many others
The veterinarians at Cozy Cat Veterinary Hospital work closely with clients to identify and manage the specific needs of aging pets. We recommend regular physical exams; Please schedule an appointment if you notice any change in your pet’s temperament or physical abilities.
