We love our aging four-legged companions and want their senior years to be as healthy and happy as possible. The size and breed of your dog will have a lot to do with his life expectancy, but in general all dogs are considered a senior at age seven. Due to advancements in medical care, dogs are living longer than they ever did before.
As your dog reaches his or her golden years, there are a variety of conditions and diseases they can face, including weight and mobility changes; osteoarthritis; kidney, heart, and liver disease; tumors and cancers; organ failure, hormone disorders such as diabetes and thyroid imbalance; and many others. Just as the health care needs of humans change as we age, the same applies to pets. It’s critical for the health of your pet for you to work closely with us to devise a health plan that is best for your senior dog.
We offer specialized senior pet care for dogs that are aged 7 and older. We have senior care programs that include comprehensive blood work, chemistry, thyroid, CBC, urine test, chest x-ray, abdominal ultrasound, blood pressure monitoring and eye pressure check.
