Senior Pet Care

Dedicated Senior Pet Care

At West Orange Veterinary Hospital, we understand that pets are cherished members of the family, and as they age, their needs change.

We take special care to outline personalized evaluation plans to support your beloved companion through their golden years, ensuring they remain healthy, comfortable, and happy as they grow older.

With compassionate care and tailored treatment plans, we’re here to help your senior pet enjoy their best quality of life for as long as possible.


Understanding Your Senior Pet’s Needs  

As pets age, they may experience changes in their health, mobility, and overall well-being. Common age-related conditions in senior pets may include arthritis, dental disease, kidney disease, hormonal disease, cognitive dysfunction, and vision or hearing loss.

By understanding your senior pet’s unique needs, we can develop a personalized care plan to address their specific health concerns and ensure they receive the support they need to thrive.


Comprehensive Senior Pet Wellness Exams

Regular wellness exams are essential for monitoring your senior pet’s health and detecting any signs of illness or discomfort early.

During a senior pet wellness exam, our experienced veterinarians will perform a thorough physical assessment, including a comprehensive evaluation of your pet’s weight, mobility, organ function, and overall vitality.

We may also recommend diagnostic tests such as blood work, urinalysis, and imaging studies to screen for age-related health conditions and provide proactive treatment as needed. 


Tailored Treatment Plans for Optimal Health  

Based on the findings of your senior pet’s wellness exam, we will work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses their individual health needs and lifestyle.

This may include dietary adjustments, supplements, pain management strategies, mobility aids, dental care, and medication management to alleviate discomfort and improve your pet’s quality of life.

Our goal is to provide compassionate care that enhances your senior pet’s well-being and allows them to enjoy their golden years to the fullest.


Supportive Care and Compassionate Guidance  

As your senior pet’s primary caregivers, we are here to provide ongoing support and guidance to help you navigate the unique challenges of caring for an aging pet.

Whether you have questions about managing chronic health conditions, adjusting your pet’s environment to accommodate their changing needs, or making end-of-life decisions with compassion and dignity, our team is here to offer the support and guidance you need every step of the way.
