Geriatric Care

At Spring Branch Veterinary Hospital we understand how strong your bond is to your pet. We believe that we should do everything in our power to help keep geriatric pets comfortable as they age. Older pets often suffer from arthritis and other causes of joint pain. We have many options for pain control and joint care. Never give your pet your own medications or over the counter medications without consulting with us first. Many human pain medications are very dangerous for pets.

Meloxidyl is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) specifically designed for dogs with joint pain. There are many other pain control options for dogs and cats.
