Did you know that your cat is considered a senior at the age of 10 and dogs from the age of 8? It’s becoming more common for our family pets to live well past these ages but older pets really do need extra care. Regular health checks for our senior pets can help catch disease early, saving your pet discomfort and potentially, you money. By screening for illness regularly, monitoring their diet, exercise and wellbeing, we can keep our much loved family pets healthy for longer. We screen blood and urine samples at our in-house laboratory for diabetes, liver and kidney disease and other conditions. Regular screening means we can pick up on changes early, giving any necessary treatment the best chance of success.
We also check your pet for signs of dental disease, which is increasingly common the older they get and can cause them a lot of pain. Vaccinations, worming and flea control should be kept up to date in our seniors and diet assessed to manage their weight. Most pets benefit from a less rich diet as they age which we can offer advice on.
Call your local receptionist and ask for our Seniors Club details to keep your older pet in the best of health.
