SENIOR CARE CANINE PROGRAMS
As dogs age, they need specialized care to ensure their continued health. Our Senior Care Senior Programs include all of the routine healthcare your senior dog needs at up to 15% off our regular fees.
Senior Care Canine Programs are for dogs aged 8 years and older.
Annual Check-Up Consultation
Twice yearly, we perform a complete check-up. During these appointments, our doctors and technicians will collect a full history and perform a series of examinations and assessments to prevent disease
Senior dogs continue to need regular vaccines to stay healthy. Our Senior Canine Programs include these vaccinations:
Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
A fecal exam helps us detect parasites and other intestinal organisms that can cause disease.
We then recommend a parasite medication (dewormer) for your pet to take regularly.
Preventive Blood Tests
Blood tests screen for medical conditions, infectious disease, diabetes, liver and kidney disease. Early diagnosis and management can improve quality of life. Even if your dog is young and healthy, performing this testing establishes normal values, which can be compared overtime. Our tests include a “CBC” (complete blood count), which can help determine whether your dog is dehydrated, anemic, or dealing with an infection. The “comprehensive chemistry” monitors internal organ function (liver, kidneys, pancreas), and the “urinalysis” assesses the health of the kidneys and urinary system and detects diabetes. The “Total T4” screens for hypothyroidism.
Annual Blood Pressure Testing
There are several medical conditions where regular monitoring helps keep your dog healthy and provides much needed information for your veterinarian.
Heartworm and Tick Borne Disease Screening
Heartworm disease is a potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the lungs and the heart’s blood vessels. A quick and easy lab test determines if a dog
is infected with heartworms or has a tick born infection (Lyme disease).
As tartar builds up, abscesses may form along the gum line causing infection. Left unattended, the infection can enter the blood stream, leading to serious health problems such as heart, liver, lung and kidney disease. Dental cleanings include an examination, x-rays, anesthesia, cleaning and polishing to remove plaque from tooth surfaces.
