Senior Pet Care

Because our pets age more quickly than we do, it is important as they reach their senior years to be sure that they receive one to two physicals per year. It is important for the veterinarian to be able to evaluate your pet both internally with senior blood screens as well as externally with a physical examination. With wellness blood testing, problems can be identified and treated faster for a better quality of life and hopefully longer life expectancy for your beloved family member. Chemistry and hematology blood tests can provide a detailed look at your pet’s internal health. Blood screening is also important if you elderly pet is on medication or needs to undergo anesthesia for a surgical procedure.
