PREVENTATIVE & URGENT SENIOR PET CARE

As our pets age, their veterinary care needs will change. The exact age a pet enters their golden years will vary depending on their species, breed and overall size. For example, a small breed dog has a much longer lifespan than a Great Dane. We generally consider dogs around 7 or 8 years and cats around 11 years old to be a “senior citizen.” VetCheck Pet Urgent Care Center offers both preventative and urgent senior pet care in Fishers. Our late night and weekend hours make it easier for owners to get their senior pets what they need, no appointment necessary.

SENIOR PET CARE NEEDS

Just like in humans, cats and dogs often have additional health issues pop up as they get up there in years. We suggest bringing an older pet in at least twice a year for wellness and preventative care. This allows the veterinarian to take a look at their overall health and catch early warning signs of disease. Early treatments are usually much more affordable and, most importantly, are often much easier on your pet. We’ll often request to run a few tests to keep track of their results over time between exams. Our clinic offers comprehensive senior pet care options for owners in Noblesville, Fishers and the surrounding areas.
