The essence of this program is to give every one of our dogs and cats the best quality and quantity of life possible. Old age itself is not a disease but we are aware that certain diseases can be age related. Some of the medical conditions that can affect cats and dogs, such as kidney and heart disease, diabetes and high thyroid levels often start to show signs between 7-11 years of age. In response to this we believe it is important to begin monitoring older cats and dogs for these conditions from seven years old (around 49 human years), or earlier if they are at risk from other factors such as breed and prior health problems.
The Senior Cat and Dog Program involves a visit with us twice a year, the aim being to see your pet every 6 months.
