Wellness Blood and Urinalysis
Beginning at around age 7, your pet enters his or her senior years. Often, pets begin to develop diseases common to their senior human counterparts, such as diabetes, heart disease, endocrine disease and cancer. These diseases can go unnoticed in their early stages; therefore, preventative health care is very important.
Early detection can help in disease prevention and can minimise suffering and can minimise suffering. If left undetected, many diseases can put your dog’s health at risk. The best approach to caring for your senior pet includes preventative diagnostics such as:
- Establishing baseline bloodwork
- Identifying existing health problems
- Monitoring progress during treatment
Together we can help your pet. You know your pet better than anyone else and can alert us to any changes in your pet before they become serious. We can help you understand the common medical conditions that your senior pet faces, and discuss a regular monitoring plan.
