Signs of Aging in Cats

Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital

We love our aging four-legged companions and want their senior years to be as healthy and happy as possible. In general, cats are considered senior at age seven.  Due to advancements in medical care, cats are living longer than they ever did before.

As your cat reaches their golden years, there are a variety of conditions and diseases they can face, including weight and mobility changes; osteoarthritis; kidney, heart, and liver disease; tumors and cancers; organ failure, hormone disorders such as diabetes and thyroid imbalance; and many others. Just as the health care needs of humans change as we age, the same applies to cats. It’s critical for the health of your pet for you to work closely with us to devise a health plan that is best for your senior cat.

We offer specialized senior pet care for cats that are aged 7 and older.  We have senior care programs that include comprehensive blood work, chemistry, thyroid, CBC, urine test, chest x-ray, abdominal ultrasound, blood pressure monitoring and eye pressure check.  Talk to us today about keeping your senior cat at his or her healthy best!
