 Compassionate Senior Pet Care 

Thomas Glen Erin Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing you and your senior pet with the most quality and affordable veterinarian care available. Located in the heart of Mississauga, Ontario, we pride ourselves in first-rate senior pet care, treating each animal that comes through the door as if they were part of our own family. When it comes to an older pet, Dr. Nilo and Dr. Irene make sure to pay special attention, to ensure the comfort and well-being of your furry friend. Here are a few things we recommend for senior pet care. 


Schedule Regular Visits

Sometimes senior pets may not present symptoms of a disease or illness until it's very far along. Having regular veterinarian visits can help detect any problems during the early stages, offering the best and most effective course of treatment. Some diseases may even be prevented before they start when early warning signs are detected by one of our top-notch doctors here at Thomas Glen Erin Animal Hospital. 

Keep Your Senior Pet Active

Your senior pet may not have the spring of a spry new pup, but taking them for long walks or playing with their favorite toy is a good way to keep them active. Just like their human counterparts, our pets need exercise to help keep them healthy, especially in their older years. Staying active can help their health and mobility during their golden years. 

Provide the Proper Nutrition

When people get older they can't always eat the same things they did when they were younger. The same is true for senior pets. Your veterinarian will be able to provide you with the proper guidelines for your animal's nutrition. By ensuring they have the proper food and vitamins, you can help your pet stay healthier, longer. 

Watch Your Senior Pets Weight

Weight can cause more than just internal organ issues. Excess weight on your elderly pet may cause excess strain on their muscles, joints, and back, making it hard for them to move around. Two ways you can help your pet is by following the above tips. Regular visits to the vet will help the doctor determine if your pet is gaining too much weight. Keeping your pet active will help them shed excess pounds. Providing proper nutrition for your senior pet care will make sure their body has the healthy nutrients they need for a balanced diet.
