Senior Canine Health Care

The Best Time For You to Begin Your Dog’s Senior Health Care Program is Before Age-Related Conditions Begin

Aging happens to all of us, and all of us at Sawnee Animal Hospital just love our older senior canines.  When a dog reaches his or her senior years, we believe it is critical to intervene and catch health issues early through proactive, specialized senior care exams and diagnostic testing.  These exams can help us determine problems early enough to begin treatment.

It is never too early to talk to us about senior dog care.  Providing your dog high-quality preventive medicine throughout your dog’s lifetime and knowing the facts are the best way to ensure happy and healthy golden years for you and your dog.   Early medical detection and treatment of diseases in your senior dog can only be accomplished through regular examinations and screening tests.

How do you know if your pet is considered a senior?

Your dog can be considered a senior between 6 and 8 years of age depending on several factors, such as his or her lifestyle history, breed, medical history, etc.  There are many changes in health that your dog will experience as he or she ages.  Some may be subtle, some develop slowly and are easy for pet owners to miss.

Some common age related issues include:

Senior Dog Wellness Care

As your dog ages, the type of medical care your dog needs changes too.  We recommend semi-annual senior care exams that include an in-depth analysis of your dog’s overall health.  During these exams, we may perform additional diagnostic testing and begin a dialogue about the factors that may be influencing your dog’s aging process.  Your vigilant observations from home are an important part of senior dog care.
