November is Senior/Geriatric Month!
It is a simple fact of aging that our pets' bodies start to slowdown. But do you know how to tell the difference between normal ageing and the common diseases that occur more often in later life? For example, is that loss of weight in your senior cat due to age or Thyroid Disease? The answer to this question and others can be discussed in a Senior Wellness Checkup. Going hand in hand is a discussion of prevention, because it is better to not develop a disease at all!
Fact: Senior Pets are prone to more health issues.
Your veterinarian can help with tailored Wellness Programs for your best friend.
A comprehensive health assessment routinely includes in-house blood-work to check the basic parameters of health. A tailored short or long term medical plan can then be created, and your veterinary team can assist you with the implementation. Follow-up consultations and ongoing staff support are essential to determine the effectiveness of the treatment plan and to adjust it as necessary.
Aging can be tough on senior pets, and they often need that extra TLC. The aim is to provide quality to your Senior Pet's life by treating and/or managing the diseases of aging. Chances are if your senior pet is not themselves, there is something you can do to make life better for them.

With every elderly pet, remember that early diagnosis and treatment is the best route to get a better outcome! Many of our best friends will enjoy a greater quality of life with a little extra care.
