Senior Pet Care

Pet health needs change as the body ages.


Our veterinarians and staff are here to help you adjust and provide a health care plan to keep your pet as fully involved in family activities as possible.

Dogs are considered senior at about seven, and cats are seniors at seven to eight. For a dog or cat, six months is equivalent to several human years, and health changes can occur very quickly in the senior years.

More frequent health exams are one of the ways in which the veterinarians of Town & Country can quickly identify any changes in body functioning that could be a precursor to disease. The sooner we can diagnose a condition, the easier it is to restore normal functioning and health to your pet.

At home, pet owners can watch for changes in their pets and alert our veterinarians to any concerning behaviors. Some changes to watch for include:

  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in urinating or defecating
  • Difficulty moving
  • Changes in how they pick up and chew food
  • Changes in fur texture or condition
  • Increased irritability
  • Decreased energy
