Pet Senior Care in Forest Hills, NY
Senior Care includes many of the same aspects of wellness care including regular patient history updates, physical examinations, etc., but also includes screening via diagnostic tests for common diseases that present themselves in geriatric pets. For example, some of the most prevalent geriatric diseases in cats and dogs are diabetes, kidney disease, and thyroid disease. All of these diseases can be tracked via geriatric diagnostic screening, allowing us to begin treatment and hopefully extending your pet’s life. A large part of senior care is also tweaking your geriatric pet’s diet to meet their nutritional needs.
