Senior Feline Wellness
Cats at every life stage need annual exams and other forms of preventive medicine to enjoy a long and healthy life, and senior feline wellness is especially important. As cats grow older their mobility decreases and they are not able to groom themselves as effectively. They are also prone to a variety of health issues, including:
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Dental disease
- Kidney disease
- ...and more
Our goal is to soften the effects of aging so that every cat in New Orleans can live comfortably and happily.
Improving Your Senior Cat's Quality of Life
Senior felines can still enjoy their golden years with you. To keep them as comfortable and content as possible, we might recommend semiannual (twice-yearly) visits to maintain their health and screen for signs of illness. Prevention is still just as essential for senior cats as it is for kittens and adult cats, and with early detection comes early (and more effective) treatment.
Committing to regular checkups at our animal hospital can extend your cat’s lifespan and enhance their quality of living. If your sweet senior is due to see their veterinarian, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
