Senior Care

By the time most companion animals reach the age of 7, they are already considered to be a “senior citizen”. Just like humans, as animals age, their bodies change and their health care needs subsequently evolve. It’s important that we treat our senior pets with extra care and attention to help extend those later years and improve their quality as much as possible. Acadiana Veterinary Clinic offers specialized geriatric care to serve our senior pet population.

Our senior health care services are designed to keep your aging loved one as happy, healthy and fit as for as many years as possible – from ongoing health screenings to pain and disease management to nutrition and weight control. Thanks to our in-house clinical laboratory, we are able to institute on-site senior wellness exams and blood work for your pet. These enable us to detect diseases much earlier when they can be more effectively treated, are less costly, and can improve the quality of life for your senior pet.

We are also able to help an aging pet that may be experiencing mobility issues. We offer a variety of therapeutic treatment options, including acupuncture and rehabilitation services, that can help keep your older pet limber, flexible and pain-free.

You love that old guy or gal, and so do we! Let us help them enjoy those precious golden years in comfort and good health. Call today to schedule your pet’s next senior wellness visit.
