We wish to keep our pets healthy and happy for as long as possible and this can be achieved through exercise, a healthy diet, and regular veterinary check ups. Aging changes such as arthritis, vision, and hearing losses are normal and cannot be prevented. Many changes related to disease, however, can be managed and treated successfully if detected early.
In addition to the routine preventative care for adult dogs and cats, we offer an Annual Health Monitoring program that includes the collection of a blood sample and laboratory analysis for detection of liver and kidney disease, diabetes, and anemia. Including an interpretation of results and consultation with our veterinarian staff to discuss any recommendations we may have.
Dietary changes are in order for dogs and cats over 7 years of age. There are many “Senior Diets” on the market and it is likely the brand of food your pet eats has one available.
