Senior Wellness

Just like people, the medical needs of senior animals change over time. In fact, pets age at nearly seven times the rate humans do. As your cat or dog gets older, they require different nutrition programs and exercise routines, and are prone to various new diseases. Down Main Veterinary Hospital provides ongoing education to pet owners about how to make your pet’s golden years the greatest! 

Routine veterinary visits are the best way to identify, track, and treat problems early on. We recommend that senior pets get semi-annual exams and routine bloodwork at least annually.
