Senior Pet Care In Boca Raton, FL

As our pets age, they may require more frequent or specialized veterinary care. The staff at our hospital is experienced in providing quality care for older animals, and we are here to help you ensure that your pet enjoys a long, healthy life. If you notice signs of aging in your pet, please bring them to our hospital for an examination. We can develop a treatment plan to address any underlying issues.

Caring For Your Senior Pet

As our pets age, they may require more frequent or specialized veterinary care. Just like their human counterparts, older pets are more susceptible to health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, and cognitive decline.

That's why it's important to bring your senior pet in for regular check-ups and to be aware of any changes in their behavior or appearance. If you have any concerns about your pet's health, don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to help ensure that your pet enjoys a long and happy life.

Here are a few things you can do at home to help care for your senior pet:

  • Keep them active. Regular exercise is important for senior pets, as it can help to reduce the risk of obesity, arthritis, and other health problems.
  • Feed them a healthy diet. A balanced diet rich in nutrients will help your pet maintain their health as they age.
  • Keep their vaccinations up to date. Vaccinations help protect your pet from serious diseases, and some are especially important for older pets.
  • Monitor their weight. Keeping an eye on your pet's weight is important, as seniors are more prone to obesity-related health problems such as diabetes and joint problems.


Bloodwork is an important part of your pet's health care. It can give us information about your pet's overall health, including their kidney and liver function, their hydration levels, and whether or not they have any infections. Bloodwork can also help us diagnose some diseases, like diabetes, before they cause any symptoms.

At our hospital, we recommend that all pets have at least one bloodwork panel done every year. For senior pets, we may recommend more frequent panels to keep a close eye on their health. If your pet is sick or injured, we may also recommend additional bloodwork to help us provide the best possible care.

If you have any questions about bloodwork or your pet's health, please don't hesitate to ask.


A urinalysis is an important diagnostic tool that can provide valuable information about your pet's health. A urine sample can be used to assess kidney and liver function, detect urinary tract infections, and even diagnose diabetes.

At our hospital, we use state-of-the-art equipment to perform comprehensive urinalysis tests. Our highly trained staff will interpret the results and provide you with a detailed report. We will also work with you to develop a treatment plan, if necessary.

If you have any questions about urinalysis or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us today.

Diagnostic Imaging

We offer a full range of diagnostic imaging services at our hospital. This includes X-rays, ultrasounds, and CT scans. We also have a digital radiography system that allows us to take high-quality images quickly and easily.

Our team of experienced veterinarians and technicians are here to provide your pet with the best possible care. We understand that your pet is an important part of your family, and we will do everything we can to help them feel better.

If you have any questions about our diagnostic imaging services, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
