The Golden Years Club:
Providing Senior Pet Care
At Levan Road Veterinary Hospital, we offer a program known as the Golden Years Club to provide senior pet care and tailor a care plan based on their unique condition. Call our senior care team today at (734) 464-6281 with any questions you have.
Senior Pets Develop Age-Related Problems
Pets are living longer than ever before, thanks to advances in veterinary care and nutrition. While this contributes to many more years of love and faithful companionship, we also see an increase in incidents of age-related diseases, such as:
- Weight gain and decreased mobility
- Heart, kidney, and liver diseases
- Dental problems and periodontal disease
- Behavioral problems
Early Detection Makes a Difference
The good news is that many of these health problems can be prevented, controlled, or treated if detected early on. Your pet ages 5 to 7 years for every one of yours, suggesting that health problems in your pet can progress 5 to 7 times faster. Aging pets have different health care needs. Unfortunately, by nature, dogs and cats tend to hide signs of illness, making it difficult for an owner to realize there is something wrong and bring them in for help. By the time some pets are brought into the clinic, it may be very difficult to restore their health. Just as in human medicine, if detected early, many health concerns may be significantly reduced or eliminated altogether.
How the Golden Years Club Works
Our goal with the Golden Years Club is to help maintain an excellent quality of life for our companions. We do this by educating owners on what is normal aging and what is not. Our focus is to enhance your pet's quality of life for as long as we possibly can.
The first step in the program involves filling out a checklist of signs/symptoms that are specific to your pet. We will review any concerns with you as well as give you a packet of information on aging to take home. From there, we may suggest things as simple as dietary changes, medications, herbal/natural remedies, or senior wellness blood screening as well as many other options. If needed, we can also refer your pet for specialty care.
We know your pet is a very important member of your family and has given you many years of love and companionship. We want to make sure their "golden years" are as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
We have been bringing our pets here since the 1970's and would never think of going anywhere else. The staff is so compassionate and caring for both the animals and their families.
Wonderful staff! Excellent service all the way around! Most of all our Murray loves going there! Highly recommended!
Levan Road Veterinary Hospital has the area's best vets and staff around (the Livonia area). I would highly recommend this practice to my friends and anyone else who needs a caring staff for their beloved pets
Dr. Fleming and the staff are SO Wonderful. Such caring and compassionate. We had to put our beloved fur-baby to sleep and they stayed open late so our family could come say good-bye.
I have been taking my dogs to Levan Vet for 19 years now. The staff is very caring and friendly. It is obvious how much they care about the animals they are treating.
