Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Lockhart

High-Quality Veterinary Services

for Senior Pets

Veterinary medicine has made such strides that pets are enjoying much longer and healthier lives with the aid of qualified and conscientious professionals like the veterinarians and staff at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic. We understand that your senior dog (small dogs aged seven years or older, large dogs aged five years or older) or cat (aged seven years or older) may experience more health issues. Therefore, we recommend an exam and consultation every six months to evaluate any health changes.

During your senior pet’s wellness care appointment, our veterinarian informs you about all your dog’s or cat’s health care needs and provides:

  • Wellness evaluations
  • Preventive vaccinations
  • Health profiles specifically tailored to senior pets
  • Parasite control education
  • Dental care and treatment
  • Care and monitoring of chronic conditions
  • Nutritional advice and weight management counseling
  • Pain management and prescription medications
  • Behavioral counseling and exercise advice
  • Referral to board-certified specialists when uncommon procedures are required
  • Humane and compassionate hospice services near end-of-life
  • Health certificates

As your pet ages, it’s important to for you to pay attention to any changes in your animal’s diet and behavior. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, it could be a sign of a serious, but treatable, illness or injury, so be sure to tell the veterinarians and staff at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic in Lockhart. We want to be your partner in providing the finest care for the pet you love.
