Senior Wellness Pet Exams

As your pet enters his or her senior years–generally at about 6 to 7 years of age–regular exams become even more essential. We recommend annual to semi-annual senior wellness exams, which include comprehensive blood work and a urinalysis to detect the early signs of age-related disease processes.

Depending on your pet’s physical exam, further screening (such as electrocardiogram, blood pressure, radiographs) may also be recommended. Be assured that we will take the time to explain all of the recommended tests as well as the results.
