Beginning at the age of 7 years it is recommended that a pet be seen for wellness visits every 6 months. These senior pets will age more quickly and because of this, we offer a Senior Wellness Package to be done 6 months after the yearly visit that would include the following:

 

-Physical Exam

-Blood Profile Major to help detect many of the problems caused by aging. Early detection of disease allows the doctor to begin treatment sooner to keep your pet healthier as it ages.

-Thyroid Test to detect hypothyroidism in your pet. Thyroid problems include weight gain, hair loss and skin problems. Thyroid problems can normally be regulated by a daily medication.

-Chest X-rays to detect heart and lung disease, cancer or any other abnormalities.

-Urinalysis to detect bladder infections, diabetes, bladder stones, kidney disease, etc.

-EKG in dogs to detect irregularities with the heart rate and rhythm.
