You may have many questions about your new family member – we encourage you to ask us! As your partner in their health, we are here to help you feel informed and comfortable in all your decisions.

Senior Care for Pets

Since our pets age at a faster rate than humans, we recommend an exam every six months after your pet reaches the age 7 in order to help them live a longer, happier life. Good senior pet healthcare requires attention to several factors:

  • Diet and weight management

  • Joint health

  • Early disease detection blood and urine tests

  • Dental maintenance

  • Diabetes screening

  • Function of thyroid, kidneys, and liver

  • Eye and vision health

  • Pain management discussion

Regular exams and testing allow us to determine what is normal for your pet, and knowing these results helps us detect any abnormalities early. An early diagnosis is crucial to your pet’s health and may also greatly reduce treatment costs. Contact us at Nippers Corner Pet Medical Center for both puppy and kitten care and senior pet care. We are centrally located in Nashville, Tennessee.
