Cats are considered to be entering their senior years at age seven.
Senior cats require:
More frequent exams
Palatable, highly digestible diet
Monitoring for excessive thirst
Easy access to litter boxes
Monitoring for excessive urination
17% of middle age and older cats that appear healthy upon physical examination have an underlying disease. Wellness Exams help us detect early-stage disease when control or even prevention is possible and also provide a baseline from which we can measure changes.
These tests include:
Complete Blood Count
Serum Chemistry Profile
Thyroid Hormone Levels
