Caring for Older Pets

When you love your pets, you always want them to have the best of everything. If you live in the San Jose area and wonder, "Where is an animal hospital near me?" you'll find one at Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. We provide compassionate veterinary care for emergency and routine exams for everyday animal health concerns. Our experienced veterinarians and friendly staff will go out of their way to make you and your pet feel safe and comfortable.

Senior Pet Care

We have a lot of experience and insight into caring for older pets. As our pets age, they are more at risk for diseases and infections and need extra care and comfort. We'll provide tips on how to safety-proof your home for your elderly pet. For example, if you have rugs on your floor, attach them to the floor with nonskid carpet runners.

If your older pet has tender paws, look for paw grips to protect their paws and give them a better grip for walking through your home. Use a pet gate to keep them out of rooms they shouldn't enter. To ensure they have everything they need, keep their food, water, and pet bed nearby. You can attach double-sided tape to the bottom of the pet food bowls to make sure they stay in place.

Learn About Your Pet

When you come into our offices at Silicon Valley Pet Clinic, your pet will receive a complete examination. Before you go to the office, find a record of your pet's vaccinations so they can be included in your pet's health record. At the end of the visit, your veterinarian will meet with you and share any concerns about your pet's health. They can also advise you on whether to change your pet's feeding routine.

What our patient say

  • "My dog Buster was in pain and wasn’t acting like himself. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Gill ASAP. He did a remarkable job during the initial exam to diagnose the problem and recommend additional treatments/services to relieve the pain Buster was in. After doing X-rays and blood work it was determined my little guy was suffering from intervertebral disc disease."
  • "This place was awesome. They took such good care of my giant Rottweiler during an emergency. They even called the next day to check up on her. The price was reasonable too. Went back again and the treatment was great yet again. Love that they stay open late and open everyday. So convenient. Thanks guys for treating my girl as is she was family!"
  • "I’m planning to travel with my baby cat. In order to do that she has to do a Rabies Neutralization Antibody Testing from certified lab. I was lucky to reach out Dr. Gill. He explained to me throughly and helped me to get it done. I would recommend Dr. Gill to everyone who needs professional and friendly help on their loved pets."
  • "I’m very happy with the service and prices of the Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. I have gotten quotes from other vets around and SVPC offers the best value! I took my dog in to get some growths removed and get this teeth cleaned."
  • "My 16 yr old cat Pete had some green discharge coming from his eye. I recently brought a feral kitten in to care for that my cousin found. I figured that Pete probably got scratched in the eye from the little guy."
  • "I was very nervous to have her spayed, especially after going through an episode of Giardia. She has been dealing with poop that is not consistent and we are doing some probiotic treatment."
