November is our senior pet month and our Senior Wellness Evaluation is available. Medical advancements in pet care over the last decade or two improved and lengthened the lives of pets significantly. We are seeing more pets reach into their geriatric years. A dog is considered geriatric at 7-8 years of life and a cat at 9 years of life. Some people may feel that is still young, but dogs age approximately seven times faster and cats approximately five times faster than people. The needs of your senior pet can change dramatically in a very short period of time.
Not only do pets’ external appearances change, but normal body functions may also change. Senior pets are more susceptible to the following conditions:
*Most of these conditions, if diagnosed and treated early, can be resolved or managed with your pet still maintaining an excellent quality of life.
Our senior evaluation has been designed to diagnose, prevent and treat the most common problems we see in our senior pets at a lower cost to you. We have two different versions of the program depending on what your pets needs are.
