The inevitable biological changes associated with aging result in a progressive reduction in the ability to cope with normal physical, environmental and physiological stresses of everyday life. Early detection of age-related diseases can result in early treatment or control and lead to a longer and happier life for your pet.
It is recommended that mature and senior pets have a regular wellness exam and blood work to assess their overall health. The health issues with an older pet are often different than that of a middle-aged adult.
The health of your pet can change rapidly as he or she ages and changes can go unnoticed. Early intervention leads to a lifetime of good health.
