Health and Wellness for Senior Pets: Making the Golden Years Gold-Quality
You want to keep your senior pet around for as many years as possible. Senior pets have special health care needs and can require extra attention. Maintaining the proper course of care can help to ensure he or she will be around for years to come.
Fleming Island Pet Clinic offers specialized pet care for pets over 7 years of age. At this time in their lives, pets can begin to experience many common health care issues. For a dog or cat, having a checkup every year is the same as a human having checkups every seven years or more.
The rate of aging for dogs and cats makes it extra important to stick to a solid health care routine. Regular checkups can help defend your pet against ailments like cancer, liver problems, diabetes and other age related illnesses.
With each annual exam, your veterinarian will address all of your pet’s needs from head to tail, including:
- Vaccination updates
- Tooth and gum care
- Evolving diet and nutrition needs
- Screening for illness or disease
- Parasite screening and prevention
At the end of the examination, your veterinarian will discuss any specialized care needed to keep your senior pet healthy and strong. Regular maintenance like this truly can change the course of your pet’s life, both in terms of quantity of years and quality of years.
For further information or to schedule your next appointment for a senior pet, please give us a call.
Very friendly and knowledgable!
We have been going to the clinic for over three years now, since the day we brought our pound puppies home. They have had multiple visits to the clinic from rashes, to knee surgery. The staff at the clinic is incredible and I tell everyone I can.
As bird owners, we are encouraged to find a pet clinic which can and does address the concerns that we have regarding Bandit.
Our veterinarian, Dr. Antar, is the absolute best! She has stood by us through some truly difficult times and I couldn't imagine trusting my pets with someone else at this point.
Friendly and clean environment. Dr. Lowry is truly an expert, she provides good and useful information on every visit.
You are kind, considerate, knowledgeable. You always are kind and treat my pet with consideration of feelings and I always feel better when I leave. I always recommend your clinic to everyone that has a pet. Thank you for being so kind.
You were the only vet that would see Pretty. So we will be keeping her there. She was in pain and you were the only ones that helped her.
We've had multiple visits and have boarded Bandit for the past 4+ years. Never had any problems or left with more questions than answers. Had a couple urgent bird issues (illness/injury) that were handled expertly and with greatest care by all.
Your staff and vet are outstanding!
The visit involved boarding our pet. However, I am always pleased with the service, staff, care and attention.
Because you have been taking care of our pets since 2002 and I trust no one else to do so.
I have been a client of Fleming Island Pet Clinic since 2000. The doctors and staff are wonderful and caring. I have taken all three of my dogs there for routine care, injuries and even end of life care for my best friend Lucky Dog.
You have taken great care of my pets over the last 15 years or longer and I have never had a problem with anyone there. Dr. Lowry is the nicest, most compassionate veterinarian I know.
Have been visiting this Vet for Over 25 years. Great staff!
Caring, courteous, and professional. Because of this we travel over an hour to get there.
There is an emphasis on client education and customer service. The facility is the cleanest I've ever seen and the veterinarians are up to date on all the latest techniques.
We've been bringing our pets to y'all for years and will continue to do so for years to come. Everyone is always so friendly, and they definitely care about their patients.
The doctors and staff, in the many years I have been bringing my pets to your clinic, have always treated us and our pets with the greatest care, courtesy and expertise.
Being new pet owners we had basic questions regarding bathing, food & shots. All of our questions were not just answered but also in a way that we could understand.
Love the atmosphere at the location. Felt already part of the family!
Dr. Curtis was wonderful! It was very professional but at the same time, I felt comfortable to ask questions and even joke!
Outstanding Service - Tour was great! Thank you for the "tic" bath for Chloe! Starter kit was very nice.
I had a puppy and the Tech that was the one to help us had just helped a diseased animal and didn't want to contaminate him. I was appreciative of the concern.
You have been very consistent with your care over the many years I have taken my pets here.
I was beyond impressed with the facility and staff. I was very comfortable leaving my bunny "Karl" there for her surgery. The facility was clean and the staff was friendly and well-trained. I loved Dr. Lowry. She was personable and had a "great bed-side manner" with the patient's owners! I only wished that I lived closer so that I could come all the time with all my pets.
Chaz was boarded for 4 nights and I knew he would be in good hands.
I've been using this pet clinic for more than 20 years and myself and my babies have always been treated with love, concern and extreme consideration! I have and always will recommend this clinic to all my friends, family and anyone else!
Very receptive and attentive staff, we look forward to seeing you often!
I rate you as 5 Star! I know I can board my feathered friend and leave town on vacation confident that he will receive the best care! If any health emergency did arise, Dr. Curtis would be there to help him!
I was impressed with how professional and clean the building is. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and seemed to really care about my pet and assisting me to provide the best care. I feel my pet will be safe under the care of this facility.
For all of the reasons I stated Strongly Agree in the statements above. Could not be happier with the attention and care my pets have received! Staff across the board are top notched.
I have total confidence in Dr. Curtis from the way she handles our beloved parrot, to the thoroughness of exams and recommendations to maintain his good health. The staff is very friendly and also extremely competent.
We have been taking our pets to Fleming Island Pet Clinic for many years. We have been very satisfied with the services that our pets have received.
I felt the vet tech and doctor had shown love for my pet and put my mind at ease and if no improvement then come back sooner, and my Elvis (bird) did recover from a sprang leg. I will be coming back for my feathered friends.
You guys are a wonderful and caring team... thank you for all you do.
