Preventative Care

Older pets experience an increased chance for a range of different diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, endocrine disease and cancer. It is very important to begin preventive health care at an early age since the beginning stages of these diseases often go unnoticed.

Beginning at age seven, cats and small to medium sized dogs should be screened for additional diseases annually. Larger dogs should begin receiving the same screenings at five or six.

Routine wellness checkups help to establish a healthy baseline and identification of illness earlier.

If your pet exhibits any of the following symptoms for more than average period of time then please consult your local veterinarian:
* Changes in your pets mobility
* Noticeable weight loss or gain
* Loss of appetite
* Diarrhea or vomiting
* Lumps, bumps or irritation to their skin
* Issues with their teeth
* Issues with their ears or shaking of head

Proactive love and care can help lead your pet to a longer life.
