   SENIOR DOG CARE

   

Congratulations!!  The care that you have given your dog over the years has allowed him/her to become a senior citizen of the dog world.  As dogs age, their medical needs change.  Older dogs tend to have more problems than younger dogs.  They also tend to be on more medication than their younger counterparts.  For these reasons we recommend examining your senior pet every six months to pick up on problems quicker.  Early intervention often leads to a better treatment result.  We also recommend running blood work at least once a year to make sure your petís organs are working the way they should.  The blood work we recommend is called a Canine Senior Wellness Screen.  It is an extensive set of tests that will allow us to access your petís blood counts (RBC, WBC, platelets), organ function (liver, kidneys, pancreas, electrolytes), metabolism (thyroid level), urinalysis, as well as screen for heartworms.  The cost of the screen is $135.  If you have any questions concerning our recommendations, please contact us at any time.
