As a clinic we have had an emphasis on senior wellness for the past 10 years. Over 40% of the pets in our practice are over 7 years of age. We strongly believe that wellness screening, ideal weight, pain scoring, muscle condition scoring, and all of the other 14 steps found in our comprehensive exam are vital to your senior pet’s well-being. Your pet deserves only the best in care, but from age 7 on up, great care is the most important. The following problems can develop that require expert diagnosis and treatment.
- Diabetes (especially cats)
- Hormonal disorders (Hypothyroidism & Cushings Disease in dogs, Hyperthyroidism cats)
- Kidney & liver disease
- Dental problems
- Behavioral issues
- Eye problems (cataracts, glaucoma, retinal degeneration, etc)
- Cognitive disorders (dogs & cats)
Come see all the great new advances at our Senior Wellness Pet Fair on Oct 23rd from 1 to 3 PM.
