Read our new Appointment Confirmation Policy
We are excited to announce our new appointment confirmation policy! In order to better serve our patients, this policy will ensure that we have accurate availability when offering appointment slots to clients with their preferred veterinarian. We do require that you reply to your email or text messages sent to confirm appointments in order to keep those appointments. Any appointment not confirmed by 5:00pm the day before will be considered cancelled and it will be released. Our goal is to provide the best medical care to our patients and decrease the amount of no-shows.

Senior Pet Wellness

As dogs and cats age, they need more attention and special care. Our senior wellness schedule can help your pet remain fit and healthy as he or she ages and help us catch any potential problems earlier when they’re easier to treat or manage. Regular veterinary exams can actually help your pet live longer, too!

Senior Pet Wellness

Diagnosing diseases and certain conditions early is important throughout a pet’s life, but it becomes even more critical when your dog or cat enters his or her senior years. The risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age. In addition, dogs and cats may not show signs of serious diseases until they are pretty advanced.

Senior status varies depending on your pet’s breed and size. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs, and cats generally live longer than dogs. We can help you determine what life stage your pet is in.

Before your dog or cat reaches senior status, we recommend that you bring your pet in for a baseline exam and diagnostic workup. This will give us a record of what’s normal for your pet so we can keep track of any changes. In most cases, we suggest this checkup for when your dog turns seven years of age or your cat turns eight years of age. Your senior pet will benefit from more frequent veterinary exams and diagnostic testing.

We can treat many symptoms commonly attributed to age, including those associated with cognitive dysfunction syndrome (similar to Alzheimer’s in humans). We can also improve your pet’s quality of life in many ways: by identifying and preventing or reducing pain, recommending an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan, and suggesting environmental modifications to keep your pet comfortable.

We will tailor a senior wellness plan to your pet’s individual needs. If you have any questions, we would be happy to discuss our senior wellness program in more detail. Call us today to schedule your pet’s exam!
