Senior Cats

We start considering a cat a senior when it reaches 9 years of age.  We all know cats age faster than us humans and the need for good veterinary care becomes even more important during these years.  This is right time to start considering senior blood work to monitor organ function.  It is always nice if you have some blood work from when the pet was young to help refer back and monitor changes.  As far as vaccinations there are two schools of thought.  Some feel that as cats age that their need for vaccinations decreases while others feel that older pets immune systems are weaker at maintaining immunity and need vaccinations more frequent.  Both scenarios may be right based on each pets specific environment and changing medical conditions.  Please come by and let us discuss your pets specific needs and create a plan that is best for  your pet.
