Geriatric & Chronic Care

Old age is not a disease, but there are many special considerations in maintaining a geriatric pet or a pet with a chronic disease.  We address the logistics of managing these pets at home, nutritional needs, special clothing, harnesses, supports, foot protection, temperature control, prescription medications, therapy plan, home exercises, and many more details that individual pets require.

Chronic care balances the capability and special needs of the pet with the abilities and resources of the owner. This is usually a work-in-progress-type relationship that rewards the diligence and attention to detail we strive to provide.
