Elder Care

Did you know most companion animals are considered to be “senior citizens” by the time they reach 7 years old?

As our four-legged family members age, their bodies experience many of the same changes as ours. That means that by the time your pet is just 7 years old, his or her health care needs will have also changed. Investing in specialized care can help your loved one thrive throughout his or her golden years. At Westside Animal Hospital, we’d be honored to partner with you in this important endeavor.

Our elder care services have been specifically designed to keep your aging loved one as happy, healthy and fit as possible. From routine health screenings to nutrition and weight control to disease management, we’ve got you covered. Our in-house diagnostic capabilities make keeping up with your older companion’s health easy and efficient. This enables us to detect the signs of potential concerns early so that we can address them in the most timely and effective manner.

Our staff is also experienced in assisting with many of the common symptoms that can arise as a pet gets older. This includes mobility issues and chronic pain. We offer a number of therapeutic treatment options, such as laser therapy, which can help keep your aging companion limber, flexible and pain-free.

All of these things add up to a better quality of life for your senior pet. Beginning elder care at the first signs of aging can also be a more cost-effective way of extending your loved one’s life.

You love that old guy or gal, and so do we! Let the team at Westside Animal Hospital help him or her enjoy those precious golden years in comfort and good health. Call today to learn more about our elder care services or to schedule your pet’s next visit.
