You may love your pets when you first get them. They are so young and cute. As time goes on, however, they grow old and may need more care than they would have needed before. That's why we at White Rock Animal Hospital are glad to give senior pet care to the animals of Dallas, TX. We also serve Lake Highlands, TX, Garland, TX, and East Dallas, TX.
When you have a young pet, you might bring it in once a year for an annual wellness check. As your pet gets older, health problems can crop up more frequently. A veterinarian on our veterinary team may recommend your senior pet comes in twice a year or more often for this reason.
While some younger pets can also develop some conditions, older pets are more at risk for things like diabetes, cancer, arthritis, or heart problems. We can help test your senior pets for these conditions so that you can manage them if your pet has any.
You won't have to wait a long time for any test results either. We have an in-house lab which can help you get a diagnosis, and treatment plan, faster.
A good diet might have your pet acting much younger than they are. His coat may be a shinier and he may be in a better mood than he was in before. A healthy diet can help keep his immune in better shape as well.
Taking your pet for regular walks or playing with him regularly can go a long way to staving off potential illness and managing any conditions he may have. It may take him awhile to get going but the exercises can be worth it.
