Introduction

As our pets age, their care and health needs change significantly. At TomVets, we are dedicated to providing specialized geriatric care to ensure your companion animals age in the healthiest and most comfortable way possible.

With TomVets’ commitment to exceptional veterinary service right at your home, we focus especially on older pets, ensuring their well-being and health in this important stage of their lives. We understand that your companion animals’ golden years are crucial and require specialized, compassionate geriatric care.

Why is Geriatric Care Essential?

Health Changes with Age

Just like humans, pets undergo a variety of health changes as they age. Joint problems, decreased energy, or changes in eating habits can occur.

Pets, like people, experience significant changes in health and behavior as they age. Our team of professionals is highly trained to identify and adapt to these changes, ensuring optimal quality of life.

Early Detection of Health Problems

Regular and specialized veterinary care is key to early detection of potential health issues. This is especially crucial for senior pets, where early intervention can make a big difference.

Consistent and specialized care is vital to prevent and promptly detect any health condition that may affect your senior pet. At TomVets, we ensure thorough assessments to proactively address these concerns.

Improving Quality of Life

The main goal of geriatric care is to enhance and maintain the quality of life for our pets in their golden years. This includes managing existing health issues and preventing future complications.

Our primary objective is to ensure that your pets live their final years with the utmost comfort and dignity, surrounded by love in their familiar environment.

The Role of In-Home Veterinarians in Senior Pet Care

Comfort and Reduced Stress

Veterinary visits can be stressful for pets, and this stress can be amplified in older animals. A home veterinarian eliminates this stress by tending to your pet in a familiar and peaceful environment. Visits to the veterinarian can be a significant source of stress for senior pets. Our in-home service removes this factor, allowing your pet to be cared for in their natural surroundings.

More Accurate Assessments

In their own home, pets are more relaxed, enabling the veterinarian to conduct more precise and detailed health assessments. Being in their familiar surroundings allows our veterinarians to provide more accurate diagnoses and treatment.

Personalized Guidance for Owners

Our veterinarians not only care for your pet but also provide you with all the necessary information and tools to care for them at home, especially when they require special attention due to their age. At TomVets, we believe in empowering owners with the knowledge and tools needed to properly care for their senior pets. We will provide practical and easily applicable advice for day-to-day care.
