Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital: The Best Veterinarians For Senior Pet Care, Ewa, Hawaii

Since 1972, Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI has been recognized as having the best veterinarians by the residents of Leeward, Oahu, and the surrounding areas. Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital’s staff includes veterinary specialists with varying backgrounds and specialties who are prepared to tend to your pet’s needs throughout his or her life, including the special needs that arise as your pet ages.

Pet health is a concern for every pet owner from the moment the person brings his or her new family member home, but it becomes an even bigger concern as the individual’s pet gets older. Like humans, pets become increasingly susceptible to debilitating conditions and diseases as they age. Some of the things that jeopardize pet health in older animals include cancer, heart and liver disease, diabetes, arthritis, and senility.

As your pet’s owner, you are the first point of defense for your pet’s health. Being aware of changes in your pet’s behavior can help your veterinarian diagnose a malady that might be affecting your pet’s health during his or her senior years. Common symptoms that indicate something is wrong with a senior pet include confusion, increased sensitivity to sounds, decreased appetite or activity, and a lack of bowel or bladder control.

If you notice changes in your pet’s behavior, call your veterinarian immediately. Communicating with your veterinarian is critical to maintaining pet health, especially when it comes to senior animals. Sharing your observations will enable a veterinarian at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital to diagnose and treat whatever health problem is affecting your pet’s quality of life. Depending on the results, treating your pet may be as simple as changing his or her diet or exercise regimen or giving your pet over-the-counter supplements or prescribed anti-inflammatory medicines daily.

Whether your pet is just starting life or is in his or her senior years, the skilled, caring veterinarians at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI will work with you to maintain your pet’s health. Offering after-hours care seven days a week, Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital truly is the best choice for pet owners in Leeward and Oahu, HI. Call them at (808) 671-7387 to make an appointment for your pet today.
