Just like humans, senior pets have increasing health problems as they age. You should bring them in for more frequent exams, ideally at least twice per year. East Ridge Animal Hospital offers the best possible treatment for your pet.
Regular diagnostic checks are even more important at this stage in their lives so any health problems are treated right away. Routine blood tests can catch smaller changes that may lead to more serious health concerns, allowing us to set up treatment as soon as possible.
Speak to Your Vet About Your Pet’s Health
During your visit to East Ridge Animal Hospital, you’ll discuss your senior pet’s health status with their doctor. Please let us know if you’ve noticed any changes in their health or behavior. It isn’t “just old age” that affects your pet’s health. We’re here to help you and your pet with health issues as they age.
Additionally, we offer end-of-life counseling to help ensure your and your pet’s needs are met during this difficult time. Contact us today to schedule a visit. Walk-ins are always welcome, but advance appointments are preferred.
