Geriatric Care

We help address your pet’s changing needs and balancing treatments for disease symptoms and progression.

Lovingkind Geriatric Support

As our pets age, they often need much more than food, water, and love. Our Geriatric Care can help you with this tough challenge.

In-home evaluation of your older pet’s medical, physical, social-emotional, and mental needs. Older pets often have multiple chronic diseases, trouble with weight loss or gain, chronic pain, mobility problems, or cognitive issues and need medications and other specialized support or care. Home care can reduce stress and manage to change needs as they arise, allowing them to age with grace and in the comfort of their home.

What to expect for Geriatric Care:

In addition to medications and more traditional treatment options, in-home geriatric support also can provide helpful environmental changes, physical medicine (such as acupuncture, massage, and exercises), and environmental enrichment. Frequent communication to make treatment changes and adjustments will help to make sure your older pet ages gracefully and stress-free.

New patients may schedule a virtual (online) QOL consult prior to scheduling their first in-home visit. All in-home care with our doctor is $142 per hour plus travel fee.
