A significant number of pets we see are senior citizens of the canine and feline world. We feel it is particularly important to monitor these pets routinely. It may be necessary to increase the frequency of physical exams for your older pet. Routine blood work and urinalysis are also important as many problems can be caught early, and therefore treated earlier. We look at each pet as an individual and make suggestions based on what we see, feel and learn from you. We realize that as your pet ages, many health changes such as arthritis can become more difficult to manage. It is our desire to help guide you in making healthcare decisions in your pets senior years.
