November is Senior Health Month

Dogs are considered seniors around age 7 and cats around age 10.

 

There are many age related conditions that affect our pets. The fact that pets age quickly means a lot can change in one year. Regular check-ups (ideally every 6 months for senior pets) can mean:

• earlier detection of disease

• more successful management of any existing conditions

• improved longevity & quality of life for your pet

Some changes a senior pet may start to exhibit include: reduced activity, changes in sleeping patterns, disoriented, less responsive, limping/stiffness, difficulty rising, bad breath, vision/hearing loss, skin masses, changes in weight, hair coat, changes in appetite/drinking, loss of house-training, increased urination, vomiting or diarrhea and coughing.

Senior preventative exams and diagnostic testing help us to evaluate organ function and detect infection, cancer and other diseases.
