Our loyal companions deserve the best care during their golden years! With our pets living longer and healthier lives than ever before, all thanks to better preventive care, access to quality nutritional support, and advances in veterinary medicine. Around the age of seven, dogs and cats begin to enter the senior stage of life. Appropriate exercise, nutrition, dental care, and veterinary services greatly impact your aging companion.
Senior pets are more susceptible to diseases and have more trouble overcoming them. Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life. Through proper testing and evaluation, we establish a baseline for future comparisons and can often detect developing diseases, even before you notice any changes.
Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing are recommended for senior pets because these test allow us to evaluate if your pet’s health is responding to current management strategies or changing with age.
We invite you to give us a call if you have any questions and you can also schedule your senior pet’s wellness exam today!
