IT’S NOVEMBER AND WE’RE CELEBRATING SENIOR PETS!

By November 8, 2017Uncategorized

**We would like to encourage all our clients to take advantage of the special promotion we are offering on senior pet blood panels during the month.**

You may be surprised at what age our pet is considered a senior. For a cat it’s 10-12 years, for small breed dogs, 10 years or older and for large or giant breed 5-7 years. The needs of our pets change as they age and they often begin to develop diseases similar to senior humans, such as diabetes, heart disease, thyroid disease and dental disease. One out of 10 pets that appear healthy has an underlying disease condition.

For the month of November we are celebrating all senior pets. We recognize the special bond that has developed with your pet over the years and the importance they serve in our lives.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR SENIOR PET HEALTHY AND HAPPY
Schedule routine checkups. Tell us about any changes you may have noticed about your pet including:
* Weight
* Appetite
* Changes in stool or urination
* Behavior
* Mobility and activity

Ask us about nutrition, exercise and the latest advancements in veterinary medications.
* Special diet and exercise programs can help to control and improve many disease conditions.
* Many health issues common in older pets can be effectively treated and managed with medication and nutraceuticals.

Consider testing options that can identify early stages of medical conditions before they start to affect your pet’s quality of life.
* Routine blood testing
* Urinalysis
* Radiographs

Please call our clinic for more details. 250-782-7297.

You know your pet better than anyone and can alert us to any changes you may notice before they become serious. We can help you to understand common medical issues that your pet may face and discuss a treatment plan. Together, we can help your pet live a long and happy life.
