Compassionate Geriatric Pet Care

At Hendersonville Veterinary Hospital, we recognize the distinct medical needs that come with the aging process in pets. Our approach to geriatric care is rooted in a deep understanding of the unique medical challenges that senior pets face. Just like humans, pets can develop age-related health issues, and our dedicated veterinary team is here to provide the specialized medical care required to keep them healthy and comfortable as they enter their senior years.

Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life, so don’t forget to keep your senior pet’s scheduled wellness appointments. The best way to help protect your pets as they age is to understand the aging process in animals. Even if your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, treatment recommendations can change as the condition progresses. Sometimes, medication dosages need to be adjusted, or medication may need to be changed. Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing are important for senior pets. These tests allow us to evaluate how your pet’s health responds to current management strategies or changes with age.
