Senior Pet Care

Scott County Animal Hospital believes in a strong senior pet program to ensure that your pets live long and happy lives. Our senior program aims to fully-evaluate your pet's health and provide you with information to help prevent old-age diseases, and to help manage problems as they develop.

Pets are considered seniors at age 7. Because pets age faster than humans, we recommend that every pet over the age of 7 receive a wellness exam every 6 months. This allows us to detect diseases (such as liver, heart, or kidney diseases) at very early stages so that we can start interventional treatment.

We offer a Senior Wellness Package to assist in providing optimum care to your senior pet. This package includes the semi-annual wellness exams, bloodwork, urine and stool testing, heartworm test, blood pressure measurement, arthritis evaluation, and nutritional consultation. All these services are provided at a package price, which reduces the cost compared to individual testing.

Common problems seen in senior cats and dogs include obesity, arthritis, dental disease, liver disease, kidney failure, heart disease, and vision or hearing loss.

  • "A huge thank you to Colene for always making Lola’s visits relaxing 💜 Lola did great with Dr. Knutson. I’m happy that I’ve finally found a place that truly cares about the well being of my fur-baby 🐶 Their whole staff is welcoming and I never have to worry about Lola’s appointments."

  • "SCAH has some of the most caring, compassionate and professional staff anywhere! They have treated our puppy dogs for the past 31 years and have treated each one with such kindness, knowledge and special care that we can't imagine going anywhere else. We have had some special issues with a few of our dogs and I feel like they not only did their utmost to give the best care, but also make sure that we as pet owners are part of the process. And when sadly, one of our fur babies has passed, they have given us such kindness and understanding that it makes a hard time much easier. Bless you all for your wonderful care to us and our doggies."
