How old is your pet in human years? Senior pet’s need special care.

We recommend that senior pets have twice-yearly visits to detect and treat medical health issues. Some common diseases in older pets include arthritis, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, thyroid disease, cancer, vision loss and hearing loss. Diagnostic tests may be recommended to detect these problems. Treatments are available to help manage many conditions and increase your pet’s enjoyment and quality of life. Healthy older pets can benefit from regular check ups and the support that our doctors provide as they age.
