Senior Cat Clinics
These days our cats are living longer and longer. We regularly see cats in their late teens, and even sometimes in their twenties. However, we consider cats over eight to be ‘senior’, meaning they have an increased risk of certain health issues.
Just like people, older cats are more likely to start getting health issues, including arthritis, dental disease, thyroid problems, high blood pressure to name a few. One of the main differences between us and our pets is that they can hide the early signs of these problems, often carrying on as normal until the condition is fairly well advanced. Cats are particularly good at concealing their discomfort, often seeming well to their owners.
Harris, Hill & Gibbons Westbury branch is pleased to launch our Senior Cat Clinics, for the older members of the family.
We are passionate about preventative and geriatric medicine. These clinics are designed to help pick up early signs of old-age conditions, which means we can start treatment or management much sooner, leading to happier and longer lives for our pets.
Early recognition is vital for the best management of all old-age conditions. Our Senior Cat Clinics are specifically for cats aged eight years and over.
