Senior Wellness Care
Cats and dogs are considered senior at 7 years of age. This number can vary depending on the breed of dog. Whether you have a cat or a dog, scheduling a senior wellness exam is imperative to your pet's overall health.
During a senior wellness exam, particular attention is paid to age-related conditions. Our veterinarians look for signs and symptoms such as: pain or discomfort in joints, periodontal disease, impaired cognitive functioning or vision just to name a few.
Our pet's can be masters of hiding pain and illness. Many serious diseases or conditions may not present until they are in the advanced stages. We recommend a general panel to check your pet's complete blood count, liver, kidney and thyroid functions; chest and abdomen x-rays, and a urinalysis every 6-12 months. This helps our veterinarians detect diabetes, arthritis, and even cancer.
