Senior Cat Care
Do You Have A Senior Cat?
At Islip Animal Hospital, our team of veterinarians are here to help you with your senior cat every step of the way. We strongly recommend that all senior pets receive two wellness exams per year to ensure that all joints, bones, heart condition, liver, and other organs are functioning properly.
Cats have a much faster aging process than humans, and you may see dramatic changes in as little as 3 to 6 months. During your senior cat’s wellness exams, our veterinarians will be able to detect, treat, and diagnose any and all conditions before they worsen and become serious problems. Age-related changes are a part of living with a senior pet, and we are here to help you make your cat as comfortable as possible—providing you with tips and all of the information necessary to do so. Together, we can ensure that your pet’s senior years are the best to come.
