Pet Care Plus packages: Senior Dogs & Cats
Keeping Our Older Pets Healthy
As we age, our bodies start to show some wear and tear. Pets aren't different, and in later years subtle changes occur that can't be found on physical exams.
Such changes as arthritis, heart problems, and organ malfunction occur without any signs as we age. Yet, if discovered early, these problems are treatable, and both the quality and length of life are increased.
Pet Care Plus Senior is designed to keep pets healthy and to find hidden problems while they are still treatable. Recommended for all pets over seven years old, Pet Care Plus Senior is a group of diagnostic tests that effectively evaluate the changes that occur with aging.
You may be seeing your pet sleeping more, or gaining weight, or showing haircoat changes. While these signs may seem like normal 'old age' to you, they are often signals of medical problems that can be improved.
In the past, we often accepted a declining quality of life for our aging pets as a fact beyond our control. Thanks to advances in disease detection and treatment, many of these aging changes can be controlled or corrected.
We encourage you to be proactive in keeping your pet healthy and comfortable.
Pet Care Plus Senior - Convenient and Complete
The Pet Care Plus Senior package is designed for minimal stress for you and your pet. Just call and schedule a time when your pet can be left for a few hours. We'll take care of your pet's yearly needs, perform the diagnostic tests needed, and have your pet ready to go home. If desired, we'll also set up a conference appointment for a few days later when all results are in. Your pet will not need to return, and you can schedule at your convenience to go over results with your veterinarian.
