Senior Wellness Program for Pets 6 Years and Older
Just like us, your senior pets are more likely to develop health problems as they get older. Routine comprehensive examinations and diagnostic testing can help detect abnormalities . Often by the time symptoms are evident, permanent damage has already occurred.
As our pets enter into their senior years (6 years and older) we see the following changes:
Their metabolism slows down
The aging process settles in
They are more prone to skin problems
They are more prone to heart, liver and kidney disorders and cancer
The most common ailments in older cats and dogs are:
Chronic kidney failure
We have developed a wellness program for your senior pets. This program is designed to allow your pet to grow old in grace and comfort while being more
Ask one of our receptionist if you are interested or have any questions about the wellness program.
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth and health. Routine dental examinations can detect and/or prevent periodontal (gum) disease. If dental disease is detected early, you can prevent further damage and save as many teeth as possible.
Warning signs of dental disease:
Tartar-Yellow-brown crust on the teeth
Loss of appetite
Teeth that are missing or loose
Difficulty eating and chewing food
The tartar that build up in your pet's mouth and any other affected areas of the gums can have an adverse effect for your pet's heart, kidneys, intestinal tract and joints.
We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.
A comprehensive exam is required prior to a dental cleaning to make sure that your pet is due for a dental cleaning and to make sure that your pet is healthy.
Call and speak with one of our receptionists about getting your pet's teeth cleaned.
Flea & Tick Prevention
Adult fleas jump on your pet when they sense a host is near. A female flea can lay up to fifty eggs a day - 4,000 eggs in her lifetime. Eggs fall off your pet and develop into worm-like larvae, which hide in carpeting, furniture, bedding, and other dark places. The larvae mature as they feed on fecal matter dropped by adult fleas and the cycle continues.
Fleas are the number one cause of skin conditions in cats and dogs. Fleas cause irritation, extreme discomfort and can sometimes lead to anemia, flea allergy dermatitis, Bartenellosis, and other diseases. When fleas are ingested, your pet can contract tapeworm.
Symptoms of flea infections include itching, scratching, loss of hair and unusual amount of chewing and licking.
Ticks will wait patiently on the end of a leaf or long blade of grass for an unsuspecting host to pass by. Ticks can pass Lyme disease and be detrimental to the health of your pet.
We offer the best quality flea and tick treatments including the newest in the fight against fleas. We can also show you the best ways to combat an existing flea problem and how to avoid reinfestation.
Come on in or give us a call and we can find the right flea and tick product for your pet.
