As our pets age, we need to be aware of the common problems that may arise. Often arthritis, weight gain/loss, heart disease and internal diseases can have a profound effect on their quality of life. At Animal Medical Center, we are proactive and address these issues early so the senior years can be some of the best years of your pets’ life. With frequents exams and certain age related testing, we can diagnose problems and start treatments that prolong your pet’s life.
Does your pet have trouble getting up and down? Does he limp or have pain after exercise? Does your dog cough frequently and have trouble sleeping?? Have you noticed increased drinking and urination? These are just a few of the symptoms we ask our owners to look our for in an aging pet. We recommend exams every 6-12 months to address any changes. In addition, yearly labwork is imperative to assess over health.
