Did you know that approximately 10% of pets presented to veterinary clinics for annual check-ups have some underlying disease or abnormality?
 

Due to advances in veterinary care, cats today are living longer than ever before. This means that more cat owners will be faced with the special demands and problems that become apparent with age. Understanding the aging process and the most common problems that face the aging cat is the first step in providing the best possible care to elderly patients. The doctors and staff at Manhattan Cat Specialists have a special fondness for senior kitties, and we are keenly aware of the special problems and needs of our elderly patients.

Did you know that approximately 10% of pets presented to veterinary clinics for annual check-ups have some underlying disease or abnormality? Most of these pets appear normal on their physical examination, and therefore any abnormalities go undetected without a wellness health screen. 

Manhattan Cat Specialists' Wellness Programs
have been carefully designed by our doctors so that we can detect problems early and prevent or delay the development of disorders associated with aging. Practicing preventive medicine improves quality of life and is more cost effective than attempting to treat problems after they appear.

Simple tests can check your catís liver and kidneys, white cell count and red cell count, blood sugar, electrolytes, and thyroid status. They can also alert us to hidden infections, inflammatory disease, anemia, and sometimes cancer. Once the problem is identified, appropriate treatment decisions can be made. Many times, a simple change in diet is all that is needed to avoid major health problems in your pet. Manhattan Cat Specialists is devoted to keeping your senior cat happy and healthy for as long as possible.
