Vet Geriatric Care for Senior Dogs & Cats

To help older pets maintain a good quality of life as they continue to age, we recommend routine preventive veterinary care and twice-yearly wellness exams throughout their golden years.

We believe that diligent care as your pet surpasses middle age can help extend your pet's life and good health, so it's important that they attend regularly scheduled wellness exams, even if they seem healthy. 

Our veterinarians do all we can to help geriatric pets from Houma & Raceland achieve optimal health by identifying and treating emerging health issues early, and providing proactive treatment while we can still effectively and easily manage them.

Typical Health Problems

Thanks to improved dietary options and advances in veterinary care over the decades, our four-legged friends are living far longer today than they have in the past. 

While this is certainly something to be celebrated, it means that pet owners and veterinarians now face the challenge of effectively treating more age-related conditions than they did in the past as well.

Senior pets face an increased risk of developing the following conditions:

Veterinary Care for Seniors

Our team at Marcello Veterinary Hospital will thoroughly examine your senior pet, ask about their home life in detail and recommend any tests that could provide us with valuable insights into your furry friend's physical health and well-being. 

Based on the findings, we will recommend a treatment plan to help keep your pet looking and feeling its very best. Your senior pet's treatment may include medications, activities, and dietary changes to help improve their overall health, comfort, and mobility. 

Routine Wellness Exams

Preventive care is essential to helping your senior pet live a healthy, happy, and fulfilled life. It also gives your vet the opportunity to monitor your pet's ongoing health and detect the earliest signs of developing diseases. 

Early detection of disease can help preserve your pet's physical health and catch emerging health issues before they develop into long-term problems.

With regular checkups, your pet will have the best chance at quality long-term health.
