Several non-invasive tests and procedures, when performed regularly, can help in the detection of early-stage disease as well as provide a baseline for measuring changes.
These diagnostic tests include:
- Complete blood count
- Serum chemistry profile
- Complete urinalysis
- Thyroid hormone levels
- Fecal exam
- Heartworm testing
- Other tests as appropriate
While an annual exam may be suitable for younger pets, an exam every six months may be better for an older dog or cat. For a dog, this length of time is the equivalent of five to eight years in the life of a human. For a cat, this represents four to six years of equivalent time.
A proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are critical to your pet's continued health and comfort. For senior dogs we may advise modifications including special diets or exercise regimens. Senior cats may require special diets, easier access to litter pans, and assistance with routine grooming.
From vaccine protocols to pain management to heartworm prevention, we evaluate each individual pet's needs based on their environment and lifestyle.
