Senior Pet Care

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, cats 11 years or older and dogs between 7 and 9 years of age are considered seniors. We recommend bringing in your senior pet twice a year for routine exams so our team can discuss changes to their healthcare routine.

Animals often try to hide their illness, so our ability to detect problems early is very important when it comes to managing their health. Like elderly people, senior pets are more susceptible to injury and disease, so they require closer monitoring. Maintaining frequent communication with us is key to keeping your pet comfortable during this time.

Pet Hospice Care

Some pets require special care aimed at managing their comfort, rather than curing the disease. Terminal illness cannot be cured, but the symptoms can be alleviated with tailored hospice care to make your pet’s end of life peaceful and pain-free. As difficult as this time can be, it is often reassuring to know that you have many options to help keep your animal happy at this phase of their life.

Euthanasia for Dogs, Cats, and Exotics

We understand how painful and difficult it can be to choose euthanasia for your dog, cat, or exotic pet, but you don’t have to make that choice alone. If we determine that your pet’s quality of life has declined, our compassionate staff will talk you through your options and give you time to make your decision. Our veterinarians will help to make your pet’s passing as comfortable and peaceful as possible.

If your pet is ailing, please get in touch with us at (954) 748-2002 so we can give them the care and attention they need. You can also call us at any time during our office hours if you have questions about our hospice or euthanasia services.
