If your pet is aged


and older, Front Range Veterinary Clinic considers your dog or cat to be a senior pet. Senior pets require more frequent exams and careful monitoring because they are more vulnerable to illness or disease as they age. This allows our team to track your pet’s health and address any issues early on to provide more effective treatment for your golden aged companion.

Comprehensive Senior Pet Care in Fort Collins, CO

All pets can benefit from regular exams at our animal hospital, but we recommend senior pets come in at least twice a year so we can perform a thorough physical examination, provide vaccinations, perform lab testing, and note any changes in their health if necessary. Detecting a disease in the early stages means treatment may be more effective and less strenuous on your dog or cat. Older pets become more susceptible to a variety of conditions as they age including:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Certain types of cancer
