Carol Stream Animal Hospital Offers Senior Pet Care

A good veterinary practice offers services for pets at all stages of their lives, from puppy and kittenhood to the senior years. Older animals need special care to ensure their safety and good health. At Carol Stream Animal Hospital, we can help you care for your senior pet, with advice and treatment for common problems of aging.

Senior Pets Need Special Care

Cats are considered to be in the senior years when they reach the age of 10. Dogs age according to their size, with larger breeds being considered senior at about 5 or 6, and smaller breeds around the age of 8 to 10. When pets age, they may have tooth problems, may not digest their food as well or may have problems climbing stairs and exercising. Your veterinarian in Carol Stream can provide advice and care for your aging pet.

Common Problems of Senior Pets

Many pets develop osteoarthritis in their later years, which can cause pain and problems with mobility. Your vet in Carol Stream can provide medications and advice on exercise to help your pet stay active. Urinary and gastrointestinal problems can also occur, and these issues may require special diets or medications. Some pets may develop heart problems or poor kidney or liver function. Today’s veterinary medicine offers a variety of treatments for these problems to help your pet live a longer, happier life.

Regular Checkups to Maintain Health

Regular visits to your Carol Stream veterinarian will allow your pet to receive preventative care, like vaccinations and parasite prevention, and will alert the vet to any developing problems. Vet care organizations recommend taking your senior pet in for a checkup twice each year. This measure will allow an accurate evaluation of your pet’s condition, allow adjustments in current medications and ensure that minor problems are addressed in the early stages. These visits will also allow you to discuss any concerns you may have about the care of your senior pet.

Testimonial

We love CSAH! Dr. Contreras is our favorite. When my cat passed a couple of years ago and he was caring for him, he called to express his condolences. We are currently working on getting another one of our kitties healthy again, and he has been incredible. He is always so caring and informative.If you're looking for a great place to take your fur babies, this is the place! The rest of the staff is amazing, too!

"Do Your Eyes Water From the Noxious Fumes Emanating Out of Your Pet's Mouth? Have You Looked in your Pet's Mouth, Lately? You May be Surprised by What You See!Proper dental care contributes to the good health of your pet. Bad breath, inflamed, bleeding gums, discolored, loose or missing teeth are signs that your pet has dental disease. Left untreated, dental disease can weaken your pet's liver, kidneys and heart. This additional stress can affect your pet's health and shorten life expectancy.Beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending March 31, 2017, we are offering a $30.00 discount off the cost of your pet's dental cleaning. All pet's must be current on an annual physical exam and vaccinations. A blood panel is required to assure the safety of anesthesia. This panel can be done the day of the dental cleaning. If Well Pet lab tests have been done within the past 3 months, no additional blood testing will be required."
