Senior Pet Care

As your dog or cat grows older, changes begin to take place in their bodies that can affect their overall health, well-being and comfort. All of us here at Boulder’s Natural are here to help you and your pet prepare for the transition to their senior years.

Early medical detection and treatment of diseases in your senior pet can only be accomplished through regular examinations and screening tests, so we encourage you to bring your senior pet in for preventive care twice a year to keep them as healthy as possible. Please call us if you begin to notice any signs of age-related health problems in your dog or cat.
