As our pets age, their needs and care require more attention. Bi-annual exams are recommended to help detect problems early. Calhoun County Animal Hospital offers a wide range of services to detect these problems early in our older pets and will work with owners to set up geriatric disease protocols to keep them healthy and moving.

Caring for Senior Cats (Age 7 and Older)

For senior cats ages seven and older, routine blood work and a thorough physical exam will help your veterinarian detect health issues in their early stages. Dental disease, kidney problems, and thyroid problems are just a few of the senior feline health issues your veterinarian will be screening for.
