November is Here!
At our clinic, November is senior month!
This month is dedicated to all of our fluffy white faced canine and felines! We often forget how quick our pets age. We consider our fur-babies seniors when they turn about 7 years old, depending on their breed and size this may even be sooner. Although age is not a disease, age related problems most often occur during their senior years.
Some age related issues are:
- Joint Issues
- Renal Disease
- Thyroid Disease
- Muscle Atrophy
- Cognitive and behavioural changes
- Dental Issues
- Liver Disease
For our geriatric patients, to catch these issues early, we recommend semi-annual visits and annual bloodwork.
Bloodwork and urinalysis is a crucial part in detecting these age-related issues. We offer geriatric profiles for our patients over the age of 7 that will specially detect these potential issues. For our senior patients, we are offering a 15% discount on all geriatric blood panels.
