Senior Pet Care

Prevention is the key to enjoying many happy years with your senior pet. Because pets age faster than people, regular check-ups and preventive care are an important part of your senior pet's health plan. Your pet is considered a senior around seven years of age.

When Is Your Pet a Senior?

Senior Pet Wellness Exam

Citrus Veterinary Clinic is committed to helping your pet enjoy a long, healthy, happy life with you. During your senior pet's exam, our veterinarians and staff will conduct a full nose-to-tail exam, as they do for all pets. Our Senior Health Exam may also include the following items:

  • Total Health Profile Blood Test
  • Electrocardiogram
  • X-rays
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood Pressure Check

The senior health exam along with the diagnostic tools will help us screen for:

  • Arthritis
  • Kidney and liver function
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid problems
  • Hypertension

Our veterinarians will take the time to listen to any concerns you may have and work with you to determine the best course of action. If pet pain relief is needed, we will determine and prescribe the most appropriate medication available based on your pet's medical condition and the cause of the problem.

If you have any concerns or questions about your senior pet, including dietary or behavior issues, please feel free to ask one of our friendly staff at 909-596-1881.
