Senior Pet Wellness

CaptureOnce your dog turns seven and your cat turns eight, we recommend that they undergo thorough senior wellness exams and diagnostic work-ups. Even though you may believe your pet is normal, there are many disease processes that do not show any outward signs until the disease is quite advanced. More advanced diseases can be difficult to treat and are not always as responsive to treatment as diseases that are diagnosed early.

Early detection of diseases such as kidney and thyroid disease will allow us to administer the appropriate treatments to help extend your pet’s life.

Many symptoms that historically have been attributed to old age, and were considered untreatable, are now treatable. For example, some dogs that appear to have lost their mental alertness can be returned to a mental status indicative of a younger age using the appropriate therapy. Please contact us to discuss our senior wellness program in more detail.
