Adult and Senior Wellness

As your dog or cat enters his or her adult and senior years, age related problems may arise. Some of these changes may be incorrectly interpreted by owners as simply "growing old" when, in fact, a very treatable or manageable disease process may exist.

As part of any annual physical exam, we recommend annual blood profiles to assess internal organs (liver, kidneys), red & and white blood cell counts, blood sugar levels, electrolytes (sodium & potassium) and much more. Detecting disease processes and illness early, before they become a major problem, helps to add years of quality life to our pets.

Senior pets benefit from twice a year examinations since our pets age so much faster than we do. Six months in the life of a pet may equate to 5-10 years of human life. Our doctors often can detect subtle changes that require treatment that you, as the owner, may attribute to just "old age".

Some age related considerations, risks and problems include:

  • Changing nutritional requirements
  • Dental disease resulting in pain, decreased appetite or infection
  • Weight gain/loss
  • Orthopedic problems associated with osteoarthritis
  • Hearing and eyesight loss
  • Behavioral changes
  • Changes in bowel or urinary habits
  • Development of lumps and bumps (some of which may be malignant cancers)
  • Heart or kidney disease

Call today to schedule your pet????????s annual check up. Let us help in keeping him or her healthy for years to come.
