Senior Pet Care 

How your pet's needs change.

South Orange Animal Hospital specializes in Senior Wellness Visits for your dog or cat to help your pet live a long and happy life.

Geriatric pets can develop many of the same problems seen in older people, such as:

  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Kidney/Urinary Tract Disease
  • Liver Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Joint or Bone Disease
  • Dementia
  • Weakness

Your pet's Senior Exam includes the following:

  • Physical Exam by the Veterinarian
  • Blood Pressure Test
  • Urinalysis
    • A urinalysis can detect diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease and infections of the urinary tract.
    • The urinalysis can provide information not only about the kidneys and bladder, but other organs. In addition to helping us make a diagnosis, a urinalysis is also helpful in determining a prognosis (a forecast of the outcome of the disease) and response to treatment.
