Compassionate Care for Senior Pets

At Companion Animal Hospital in Traverse City, MI, we recognize that the aging process affects our furry companions just like it does for humans, albeit at an accelerated pace. Our mission is to be your steadfast ally in ensuring the health and happiness of your senior pets. We offer a comprehensive approach to senior pet preventive care, combining routine physical examinations with advanced diagnostics to catch and manage potential health issues early.

Proactive Care at Companion Animal Hospital

As your pets enter their senior years, their well-being becomes our top priority. We advocate for a thorough physical examination every six months for senior pets. This increased frequency allows us to detect and address emerging health concerns proactively.

Advanced Diagnostics: A Deeper Understanding of Aging Pet Health

Our commitment to your pet’s health goes beyond the surface. We employ advanced diagnostic tools and tests to provide a comprehensive health assessment:

  1. Bloodwork and Urinalysis: Our comprehensive bloodwork evaluates vital markers, including liver and kidney function, pancreas health, electrolyte balance, protein levels, diabetes risk, and a complete blood cell analysis. Think of it as an internal “physical exam.” A urinalysis complements this by offering insights into your pet’s renal health.
  2. Tailored Diagnostics: When physical examinations indicate potential concerns, we may recommend chest or abdominal x-rays, blood pressure measurements, or EKG (electrocardiogram) to gain a more in-depth understanding of your pet’s health status.
  3. Specialized Care for Cats: We prioritize thyroid and early kidney testing for senior cats to catch any issues early on.
