Pets are no different than humans when it comes to needing senior care. As our pets age, they, too, need ongoing visits to their doctor for checks on their health status, to receive prescribed medications, to be treated for fleas and heartworm, and to ensure pets meet their dietary requirements. At Animal Clinic of Honolulu, we have provided residents of Honolulu, HI with reliable senior pet care services for many years.
Types of Senior Pet Health Problems
In general, anywhere between 5 to 11 years old is considered "senior" for dogs and cats. The age can vary based on your pet's health history, their species and size, and their environment. As they reach their senior age, pets are susceptible to a variety of health issues. These include diabetes, heart disease, cancer, hyperthyroidism, dental disease, arthritis, hearing and vision loss, kidney disease, and senility.
Senior Pet Care Services
Our clinic, veterinarian, and staff are fully prepared to provide pets with a variety of services to help enhance their quality of life. We conduct wellness exams to get an overview of your pet's health, followed by vaccinations. We will also check for flea and tick infestations and recommend preventative treatment that best suits your pet.
We also specialize in diagnosing and treating pet ailments such as asthma, diabetes, hip dysplasia, spay and neutering, allergies, pain management, and dental care. Additional services include treating pet allergies and internal medicine. Our fully stocked pharmacy can also handle your pet's prescription needs. For pets of any age, we can add a layer of safety for them by implanting a microchip for tracking purposes should your pet become lost. To keep canines and felines looking their best, indulge them with our bathing and grooming services. If you are planning to be away from home and want to ensure your pet is safe while you are away, we offer boarding services for dogs and cats.
