Why Does Your Senior Cat Need Special Care?
Cats age a lot faster than we do… About 4 years for every 1 year that humans do.
Aging means more than just a little more grey in the fur. Hidden diseases can be lurking that can only be discovered through diagnostic tests.
Cats are really good at hiding illness. It’s a common misconception that cats don’t get sick. They are stoic and, more often than not, the signs of sickness will be masked until they are are seriously ill. Senior cats are at greater risk for kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, cancer and many other age-related problems. This holds true regardless of whether they are indoor only or indoor/outdoor cats.
Benicia Cat Clinic has developed a Senior Cat Care Plan designed to help you provide optimum care for your “Senior”. Our plan includes geriatric blood tests, fecal test, blood pressure and twice a year wellness exams at a discounted rate.
For more information, please call our office. We will be happy go over the plan with you and to mail you a brochure!
