As pets get older they often experience subtle changes in their health that are not always obvious to owners. Because pets hide their diseases so well, early detection is the key to starting successful treatment before these problems become severe.
We recommend that all pets over the age of 7 years be examined every 6 months by your veterinarian. This senior exam will include a full physical exam and any laboratory diagnostics suggested by your pet's veterinarian. Dietary changes may be in order for dogs and cats over 7 years of age; we can help you with this transition if needed.
As always, our goal is to keep pets as happy and healthy as possible throughout their senior years.
