As our pets grow old, they often require supplements and medications to ease the aging process. Arthritis and cognitive dysfunction can affect the quality of life in our senior pets. Although expected, these changes are alarming for many owners. As our pet’s behavior changes, so can our bond with them. Our new role as a caregiver requires patience and compassion, and presents itself with a unique set of responsibilities. Nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals can ease this process for you and your pet.
Below we will discuss some of the therapies available for your pet. If you are interested in learning more about these treatments please contact CoastView Veterinary Hospital for an appointment. Our Fear Free approach ensures that your pet’s physical and emotional well-being is honored. Our staff is knowledgeable in senior pet care and owner support during this time. Senior pet care encompasses many facets of veterinary medicine, that is why this blog will have several parts. Please check back monthly for more information on how to enhance your pet’s golden years.
