As our pets age, they often need a little bit of extra care to ensure they’re healthy and happy by your side. At around 7 years, we consider cats and dogs to be entering their golden years, requiring careful attention to potential signs of disease.
Early diagnosis of medical conditions, such as diabetes or osteoarthritis, allows us to begin the most effective treatments immediately. This has the benefit of cutting down on costs for our clients as well. With our ultrasound and x-ray diagnostic tools, we can identify many of the causes of pain or symptoms of disease here in our clinic.
If your pet does suffer from a degenerative condition, we offer traditional medications as well as cold laser therapy, acupuncture and veterinary orthopedic manipulation for a holistic approach to senior pet care. These treatments can help relieve pain, stimulate healing at the cellular level, and increase well being and longevity.
If your older animal becomes stressed when transported, we also offer our house call veterinary services to reduce anxiety. And if it’s time to say goodbye to a beloved pet, we provide in-home euthanasia.
Bellevue Animal Hospital is proud to provide accessible and affordable senior pet care for animals and owners in Bellevue, West Bellevue, Mercer Island, Medina, Hunts Point, Factoria, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah and the surrounding areas.
