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:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney/Urinary Tract Disease
- Liver Disease
- Joint or Bone Disease
Your pet's Senior Exam includes the following:
- Physical Exam by the Veterinarian
- Blood Pressure Test
- 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.
