As dogs and cats get older, they need more attention and special care to ensure they age appropriately.
Our Senior Wellness Program can help your pet remain as heathy as possible for as long as they can.
A pet’s “senior” status is dependant on their size, but generally a good rule of thumb is around 7 years of age, large breed dogs may be earlier, small breeds and cats may be later. There are many symptoms that can be attributed with age that can be intervened and managed such as pain and arthritis, changes in nutritional needs, environmental modifications and cognitive dysfunction.
Semi-annual veterinary exams with bloodwork, urine, blood pressure, and fecal exams are included in the Senior Wellness Plans, to help catch potential problems early on, when they’re easier to treat and manage.
Give us a call at anytime for more info on how we can help your senior pet live out its golden years in comfort!
