Senior Feline Wellness

Senior Feline Wellness in New Orleans: A Gray Senior Cat Looking with Suspicion

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
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Dental disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer
  • ...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.

We love coming to the Cat Practice for vet appointments and boarding! My cat has stayed at one other boarding place and was extremely distressed when I picked him up. Every time we come here, he is happy and stress free when I pick him up! Thanks!

We have been coming since Cali was a tiny kitty and I would not go anywhere else. We are treated with kindness and friendliness and I very much enjoy going in. It has been the same kind of experience I had with my childrens' pediatric visits.

You're all absolute experts on feline health, and you give my cats the very best of care. I wouldn't take my beloved pets anywhere else.

The knowledge and understanding Dr. Cousins has of felines is outstanding. Being only 1 of 80 in the nation that is specialized in feline practice makes us feel that our fur babies received the upmost care & treatement. Would highly recommend!
