Whiskers, a 14-year-old cat with a history of kidney concerns, is enrolled in the Optimum Plan for Cats. This plan aids in monitoring kidney function and helps us address any potential complications.

Our proactive care services for senior cats include:

  • Regular Wellness Check-ups: We advocate for senior cats to undergo regular check-ups, typically scheduled twice a year. These check-ups involve a comprehensive physical examination, consultations with our experienced veterinarian, and an annual senior profile, including comprehensive senior blood work and a complete urinalysis.
  • Early Detection and Treatment of Chronic Conditions: Our focus is on the early identification and management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid disease, liver disease, and heart disease. Timely diagnosis and intervention significantly enhance the quality of life and overall prognosis for your senior cat.
  • Tailored Nutrition and Dietary Recommendations: As cats age, their nutritional requirements evolve. We assess your cat’s individual needs and provide personalized recommendations for a diet, along with supplements, to support their overall health and well-being.
  • Dental Care: Dental health is vital for a cat’s overall well-being, and senior cats are particularly prone to dental problems. We offer comprehensive dental care services to ensure the health of your cat’s teeth and gums.
  • Pain Management: Arthritis and other age-related joint issues are common in senior cats. Our team can provide various pain management options to ensure your cat remains comfortable and maintains their mobility.
  • Home Enrichment Recommendations: In addition to our proactive veterinary care, we’ll discuss how to enrich your senior cat’s home environment to promote physical activity and mental stimulation, fostering a holistic approach to their well-being.

By embracing proactive care, we aim to enhance the quality of life for senior cats, allowing them to age gracefully and enjoy their twilight years with vitality and joy.
