Spring Pet Care Tips

On average, cats age seven times faster than people and are considered mature or senior by the time they are 7!

Our ageing cats are more prone to conditions such as: arthritis, dental disease, heart disease, kidney issues, diabetes, overactive thyroid, cancer….the list goes on. Even pets that appear normal can have underlying problems, which is why regular visits to the vet and vet nurse are crucial for ageing pets.

 

 

A senior pet consultation should be done at least yearly from 7 years onwards.

Early detection allows for early management of disease which can minimise suffering and will allow our cats to live longer, healthier lives. There is so much we can do to help our ageing pets, from lifestyle changes to supplements, age related diets and medications.

We are delighted to offer Senior Cat Health Screening here at PVH. During this consultation our nurse will:

  • Take a detailed history
  • Full clinical examination especially focusing on heart, joints and teeth
  • Full blood work: checking liver, kidneys, red cells, white cells and electrolytes (can help detecting hormonal diseases)
  • Urine analysis (can detect diseases such as diabetes mellitus or kidney problems)
  • Blood pressure management

This will give us a huge amount of information on the health status of your pet allowing us to manage any conditions which may be developing.

To get your senior kitty booked in, or for more information, call us on 01 6237044 or book online right here
