Specialized Care For Aging Patients

Most of us remember being told that 1 year of a dog’s life is equal to 7 years of a human.  While this averages out, we must also take into account the size of the animal.

Example; An eight year old Great Dane is a senior citizen while an eight year old Miniature Poodle is only middle aged.

As our pets age there are a number of diseases and conditions that can impact them and shorten their lives and decrease their quality of life.

Early detection allows for early intervention helps us to prevent serious harm and/or slow the progression of any disease.

We can diagnose conditions such as diabetes, heart and liver disease, arthritis, hypothyroidism, as well as different types of cancer.

We encourage all owners of middle aged and senior pets to get them on a regular plan of preventive health care to keep them happy and healthy for as many years as possible.
Examination Includes;
A veterinary examination includes an evaluation of all of your pet's major organ systems.
It involves a multi-faceted approach that includes a veterinary evaluation of your pet's overall health and risks of disease or other health problems.

Based on the findings, your veterinarian will provide you with recommendations for your pet's nutrition, dental care, vaccinations and heartworm/flea/tick prevention, as well as recommendations specifically tailored to your pet's health status, lifestyle and risk factors.
