El Paseo Animal Hospital

Senior Pet Care in Palm Desert, CA

Senior pets provide a special kind of love and companionship, and they require a special kind of care. Ensuring the health and quality of life of our clients’ aging pets is one of our top priorities.

Caring For Your Senior Pet

As our pets get older, their health needs change. Their physical health can deteriorate quickly, which means that a single annual check-up sometimes isn’t enough to keep up with their evolving needs.

As your pet ages, we recommend bringing them in for examinations more frequently - twice annually is our usual recommendation. We also recommend specific adaptations to their lifestyle and sometimes their diet, which we’ll discuss with you whenever you bring your pet in for a visit.

Senior pets of all species and breeds have an increased likelihood of developing arthritis, diabetes, cancer, and blindness/deafness. These more frequent examinations will help us spot potential issues like these early when they’re still either preventable or highly treatable.
