Most veterinarians agree that the “senior” label kicks in at 7-8 years of age and even earlier for larger breed dogs. Addressing health concerns early helps cats, dogs, and humans live longer and better. It also costs less! Many pet owners fall into the trap of thinking their pet is healthy and therefore doesn’t need to visit the vet. If there was one thing veterinarians would change, it’s this mindset.
With routine wellness visits we can uncover concerning bumps, heart murmurs, inappropriate weight loss that could be a sign of kidney health decline, and arthritic changes. We’re also here to help discover why your dog is urinating during her sleep or becoming grouchy. We can then help you and your pet navigate all of these concerns over time. Let us help you keep the golden years golden!
