Senior pets hold a special place in everyone’s heart, as the years go by and we see our beloved companions age in different and sometimes rapid ways. Often, we can be unsure as to what is going on with our furry friend’s health, because of this Anaheim Hills Pet Clinic offers a Senior Wellness package to help ease any uncertainties you may have.
Depending on the breed, some dogs are considered “seniors” at five years of age while others around seven to eight years of age. Moreover, cats are considered “seniors” around seven to eight years of age. We like to offer our package to pets that are in good health. If your senior pet has health concerns, it is best to bring them in for a separate visit so that issue can be addressed right away. A healthy pet with no known illness or injury can receive the best possible wellness exam.
Anaheim Hills Pet Clinic offers a comprehensive physical examination by a veterinarian, extensive blood work including thyroid and urinalysis, full-body x-rays, and a full ultrasound that is read by a board-certified radiologist. Upon the completion of your pet’s wellness exam, your veterinarian will go over all the results with you and if any issues arise or changes can be made, the next steps will then be taken. Our senior wellness package offers not only a thorough physical examination for your pet but peace of mind for you as a pet guardian as well.
We recommend that senior pets take part in our Senior Wellness package once a year for continued care and monitoring. As our furry friends enjoy their golden years, we owe it to them to make sure we as guardians are doing all that we can to make their quality of life be the best it can possibly be. Give us a call today to schedule your pets’ very own senior wellness exam!
