Senior Pet Wellness
in Berthoud, CO

At Berthoud Animal Hospital, we consider pets over the age of seven years old to be senior-aged, and begin recommending tailored senior pet wellness plans. While we continue to recommend consistent pet parasite prevention and vaccinations against threats in the Berthoud, CO area, we also suggest early detection screenings for older pets. As animals age, they become more susceptible to contracting health issues. Routine veterinary exams and laboratory screenings can help prevent disease, as well as detect and treat any health issues as early as possible.

Aging in Pets – What does it mean?

Once your dog or cat is considered a senior, we suggest bringing them to Berthoud Animal Hospital for a visit with their veterinarian at least twice a year. Consistent visits for comprehensive physical exams and routine laboratory screenings allow your pet’s veterinarian to stay on top of their health, detect any early signs of disease or other ailments, and customize a treatment plan specifically for your pet.

Get the best care for your best friend.
