The Senior Pet
Advances in veterinary medicine are helping pets live longer, heathier lives. That's great news because it means they can be our enthusiastic companions longer than ever before. Like humans, older pets are more likely to have health problems than younger ones. Because pets age quickly it is important to detect problems as early as possible. The best means of detection is an informed, observant owner, and regular veterinary exams and testing.
Cognitive Changes (CDS)
Affected joints are painful making your pet less active and more reclusive.
We offer a variety of ways to verify your pet's health or diagnose problems. One of the ways is by running a series of blood tests. Most of these tests can be run in house using our state of the art equipment. The doctors will review you pet's test results with you the same day, or will call you when they become available. Their expertise can help you understand the signficance of these test results so you can make the best choices for your pet and your family.
