Senior Pet Care

At Renton Veterinary Hospital, we provide care for your pet through all stages of life. Since animals age faster than we do, it is easy to forget that they can be considered seniors after just seven years. Moreover, as they get older, their health needs change in unique ways that require proper consideration.

We will work with you to develop a health plan that is right for the specific needs of your senior pet. Nutrition, exercise, and the prevention of common problems through regular exams are all ways to help your senior pet stay healthy.

As a pet owner, you want to ensure your pet has the highest quality of life as they age. With proper care, they may even get more time to spend with you and your family, so educating pet owners on proper senior pet care is vital.

The Importance of Senior Pet Care

At Renton Veterinary Hospital, we recognize that senior pets require extra care and attention to ensure they enjoy their golden years to the fullest. Like humans, pets undergo age-related changes that can impact their health and well-being. By focusing on senior pet care, we aim to enhance their quality of life and help them age gracefully, surrounded by love and exceptional veterinary care.
