Just as with senior humans, older pets often require different healthcare needs and attention.

Senior Pet Care in Moreland, GA

Pets age faster than humans, so some animals may be considered senior before you think. Additionally, certain breeds may be regarded as “senior” at different ages. While a Labrador Retriever might be considered senior at 6 or 7 years old, a small terrier at the same age may be regarded as just “middle-aged.” As our pets age, there are common issues we need to watch out for, including dental disease, obesity, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases. At Moreland Animal Hospital, we provide individualized counseling on how to help your senior pet age well while maintaining their health for a longer life.
