Senior Pet Clinics

At Stanley House Vets, we offer senior pet clinics for cats and dogs over the ages of 8. Senior clinics are available across all of our surgeries, provided by our highly qualified veterinary nurses who can advise on many aspects of your pets health care. 


Why you should book your senior pet an appointment

  • Senior pet clinics allow you to ask a qualified nurse any questions that you may have regarding your pet's health as they get older. 
  • You are able to discuss your pet's diet as when animals age they have altered nutritional needs.
  • Provides an opportunity to detect any age related issues.
  • Prolongs good quality of life. 

At a senior pet clinic, we will give your pet a health check, weight check and discuss preventative healthcare. This is for pets over the age of 8 that have been seen by a vet in the last year.

Senior Health Packages are here to help!

Here at Stanley House Vets we are always trying to ease the worry of pet owners as WE are pet owners too! We understand as your pet gets older you start to watch them like a hawk and worry more about changes in habits, behaviours, physical looks, mobility, mood changes...everything!

With these amazing new packages we are able to help pick up early signs of old-age conditions. This enables us to start treatment or management to address some issues your pet may have been experiencing. Making sure they are living to their fullest with you every day!

We offer Dog and Cat specific packages, if you are interested please phone any of our branches and they will book you an hour slot with the nurse. Please also fill our the questionnaire and send back to us at least 48 hours before your appointment. This will ensure the nurse has all the required information prior to your appointment.
