What’s in a senior Pet consult?
Older pets face unique health challenges and age-related issues. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t thrive in their senior years.
In fact, as Fremantle’s local community vet since 2008, we know how to recognise potential problems early on. Through early intervention, we can keep your dog, cat or other family pet healthy and happy well into their golden years.
Let our experienced Fremantle vets ensure your pet’s heart, kidney, liver, and other organs are healthy.
We’ll complete a blood glucose test, as well as other standard blood tests to screen for age-related problems. Please note that blood tests are not included in the consult but should they be required, can be done during the consult. 10% discount also applies to blood tests.
During the consult, we’ll evaluate and grade the health of your pet’s teeth. Based on this we will recommend ways to improve your pet’s dental health.
We’ll identify signs of any deficiencies and talk to you about the best diet for your senior pet.
With early detection of conditions such as cataracts and pannus, we can take preventative steps to preserve your pet’s eyesight.
With early intervention for arthritis, we can start treating your pet now, minimise pain, and help your pet stay active.
We’d love to hear from you.
Your pet deserves the best. Call today and save 10% when you book your senior pet consult.

Learn what pet owners in Perth are saying about us.
“Can’t recommend Hilton Vet Hospital enough. Me and my family have been coming here for a long time for all our pets, dogs and cats.
The staff are very friendly, passionate people who treat people and animals with the utmost respect, care and dignity.
Unfortunately vet visits can be a sad experience but the kindness and compassion of all the crew at Hilton Vet Hospital make these times that little bit easier”
“Excellent veterinary service. So kind and caring. Thank you for helping my cat and sorting out her skin problem.”
“My dog Bandit was diagnosed by my local vet with a cruciate ligament injury and requiring surgery. We decided to go to Hilton as they offered a free second opinion consultation, had a positive review on Google and were reasonably priced for the surgery required.
Dr Dario looked after my dog Bandit and I during our visit.
He was very knowledgeable, took the time to explain Bandits injury, treatments available to him and the best treatment for his situation.
Because of the knowledge and experience at Hilton we found out Bandit did not require the surgery and saved my dog from getting an unnecessary surgery and a vet bill to follow.
The rest of the staff were all super friendly too. Even received a complimentary bag of treats for Bandit on our first visit.
But the personal touch I really loved the most was the take home bag with my boys picture on it.
If Hilton wasn’t an hour drive from my home, I’d be making them my new local”
“Passionate and experienced vets and nurses and competitive pricing”
“I was at Hilton vet clinic first time yesterday.
Dr. Heinrich and his stuff were so nice that honestly I felt I am at home with friends.
Dr.Heinrich was sooo thorough checking my darling Loki, what I never experienced with any other vet.
I went there with no referal from anybody, just my gut feeling and OMG i couldn’t beleive warmth and knowledge at that place.
My biggest mistake is that I didn’ t listen to my gut feeling sooner and transfer to this wonderful vet earlier.”
Snow White’s owners trust Hilton Vet with their 27 y/o cat.

I currently go to another vet but want to try Hilton Vet.
We’re glad to hear that you’d like to try Hilon Vet! Your pet’s medical records are important so it’s best for us to get a hold of them prior to your consult. It’s common practice for vets to pass over medical records so don’t feel bad for requesting your documents from your current vet.
Where are you loated?
Our address is 294 South Street. We’re located close to the South St. & Carrington St. intersection between the 777 Pharmacy and the squash Centre. We have plenty of parking too.
What are common health issues aging pets face?
As your pet ages, they are at a greater risk for problems such as arthritis, poor eyesight, and heart, kidney or liver problems.
What signs should I look for in my senior pet?
The following can be signs that your senior pet is developing a health condition or is suffering from a nutritional deficiency.
- Changes in your pet’s behaviour
- Limping or trouble getting up
- Less active or less interest in exercise
- Weight gain or loss
- A dull, oily, or smelly coat
- Coughing or laboured breathing
- Drinking more water and urinating more frequently
When should I contact my local vet?
If you notice any of these signs, contact Hilton Vet Hospital, your local community vet. We’re also available for routine preventative appointments.
What if my senior pet seems healthy – should I still book a senior pet consult?
Yes, definitely. The truth is, often our pets don’t communicate their pain or discomfort, so pet owners don’t always know there’s a problem right away. Through a complete senior pet consult, we will recognise any early signs so we can prevent more serious problems and treat issues quickly.
