senior kitty

At Markham Woods Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to ensuring the well-being of your feline companions as they gracefully age.

We believe in a compassionate approach to caring for your aging cat, focusing on proactive measures rather than simply addressing issues as they arise.

Our philosophy revolves around promoting your cat's overall wellness throughout their life, with a special emphasis on senior care starting around the age of 7. As your cat undergoes natural changes with age, we encourage active participation from our clients to counteract potential ailments associated with the aging process.

For aging cats, we recommend semi-annual senior wellness exams. These examinations are crucial as they enable our veterinarians to identify, diagnose, and address any medical conditions before they escalate into serious issues, preserving your cat's quality of life.

Keep an eye out for signs that may indicate changes in your cat's health, such as weight fluctuations, alterations in activity levels, bowel function changes, shifts in energy, unexplained behavioral changes, and more. If you notice any of these, our team is here to address your concerns.

When you bring your senior cat to us, our senior wellness exam encompasses:

  • A thorough senior wellness examination, including a dental assessment.
  • Comprehensive diagnostic testing, which may include a senior cat blood profile analysis, thyroid hormone level evaluation, urine and fecal analysis, x-rays, parasite testing, and blood and eye pressure assessments.
  • Vaccinations, parasite protection, heartworm testing, and prevention.
  • Nutrition and diet counseling.
  • Behavioral evaluation and counseling.

Our goal is to assist you in providing the best and most comprehensive senior veterinary care for your aging cat, ensuring they enjoy the healthiest and happiest quality of life during their "golden years." If you have a senior cat, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at Markham Woods Animal Hospital.
