Senior Pet Wellness Month

Categories: News

November is Senior Pet Wellness Month!

We all want a long and healthy life for our pets and, as they age they need extra care and attention.

When they reach around 8 years old they are considered to be “senior” and their lifestyle and needs will start to change. Your pet may become less active, their behaviour may change and as a pet owner it can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between the normal signs of ageing and the early warning signs of disease or illness.

As pets grow older they have a higher risk of developing conditions such as;

  • Dental Disease
  • Kidney problems
  • Hyperthyroidism-Cats
  • Hypothyroidism-Dogs
  • Cushings Disease
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes

We have developed a Senior Pet Wellness Check, aided by the latest training our vets and nurses have had on care of the older pet.

If your dog or cat is over 8 years old, we’d like to invite you to take advantage of a FREE Senior Pet Wellness Check with one of our nurses. This will include a free urinalysis check and they will take time to go through all aspects of your pet’s health and care at home and make recommendations about what can be done to help them as they enter the next stage of their life with you.

Call us today to book your Senior Pet Wellness Check with one of our nurses and to arrange collection of your free Senior Pet Pack which includes a urine sample collection kit.

We hope to see you soon.
