Naperville Animal Hospital Knows Senior Pets Deserve The Best

The pet experts at Naperville Animal Hospital are dedicated to the highest quality of life for your senior pet. This is achieved through a Senior Wellness Plan consisting of disease and parasite prevention, early diagnosis of age-related problems, and rigorous treatment options designed specifically for your pet’s needs.

Many health conditions in an aging pet exhibit few symptoms until they are quite severe, so the professional standard of care for senior pets is a wellness exam every 6 months, with blood work and testing annually.

The twice-a-year exam includes a complete hands-on physical, searching for signs of disease or deterioration. We assess your pet’s physical, nutritional, and behavioral condition to identify early markers of age-related issues and begin addressing them before they become major problems.

Annual diagnostic and laboratory tests for senior pets may include the following:

  • Complete Blood Chemistry panel and blood count (CBC)
  • Urinalysis
  • Thyroid check
  • Electrolyte check
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Radiographs

During each exam, we discuss the best nutritional and exercise plan for your pet based on age, health, lifestyle, and other considerations. Weight may need to be addressed, as some pets put on extra pounds with age and joint problems such as arthritis can occur.

Pain management is a top priority in senior pets, whether the issue is one of age-related illness or a chronic progressive condition. Our veterinarians are dedicated to quality of life for all pets and “a life without pain for every companion animal” is our goal.

Our Senior Wellness Program is designed to help your mature pet stay healthy, vigorous, and comfortable in the aging process for as long as possible. Reward your pet for those years of companionship, dedication, and loyalty—schedule your Senior Wellness Exam with Naperville Animal Hospital today!
