Feline Senior Wellness:
Cats age quickly and often hide signs of illness, so health problems can arise quickly. This is why paying attention to your senior feline’s wellness is important for their well-being.

The senior cat wellness exam is designed to promote the longest and healthiest life possible. It is designed to recognize and control known health risks and detect any signs of disease at their earliest, when they are most treatable.

Common Health Issues in Senior Cats:
Arthritis, cancer, cognitive disorders, constipation, deafness, dental disease, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, inflammatory bowel disease.

Healthy senior cats should see their veterinarian every 6 months.

Canine Senior Wellness:
Dogs also age quickly and can be good at hiding signs of illness. So, like cats, dog’s health problems can arise rapidly which is why it is necessary to pay attention to your senior canine’s wellness.

Senior dog wellness exams monitor your dogs as they advance in years. As dogs age, their immune systems become weaker, and they are more prone to developing certain diseases and conditions. The exam is fashioned to identify and control known health risks to help detect any signs of disease early.

Common Health Issues in Senior Dogs:
Arthritis, cancer, prostate disease, cognitive disorders, intestinal problems, deafness, dental disease, diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, liver disease, and vision problems.

Healthy senior dogs should see their veterinarian every 6 months.
