Now that your pet is considered a senior citizen of the pet world we recommend a full health check every 6 months. The aim of these additional health checks is to ensure that any new aliments are identified early allowing more rapid intervention and better long-term outcomes.
A senior wellness examination includes collecting a thorough patient history, full physical examination, nutritional advice, treatment recommendations and discussion on what signs to be on the look for. We also recommend an annual blood and urine screen to assess your pet’s internal organ function.
Common conditions associated with aging include:
- Arthritis and mobility issues
- Heart disease
- Liver and kidney disease
- Weight gain or weight loss
- Cognitive dysfunction (dementia)
