September is National Senior Pet Month!

•Hard to believe you would be considered a senior at 7 years old but dogs and cats are. As they age, they can experience changes that are very similar to aging in humans.
•Diseases and conditions that can affect older people also can affect our senior companions. Kidney, heart, liver and thyroid disease, as well as tumors, cancer, diabetes and arthritis are among the most common.
•Our job is to detect and help you understand these changes. The best approach to caring for your senior pet includes an examination, baseline blood work and other diagnostics to identify any underlying health problems and monitor progress during treatment.
Our goal is, as always to keeping your fur family healthy and happy.
