As our pets get older, their bodies start to slow down and subtle changes can occur. Whilst our pets age faster than us, they do experience many similar body changes.
The clinic is designed to help you identify and understand age related changes, ailments and illnesses in your pet. By examining your pet more frequently, not only can we detect any changes early, but we can also offer advice, support and treatment where necessary.
Prior to your appointment you will receive a senior pet questionnaire to complete and bring along. This will help highlight any problem areas to discuss during the health check.
At the Senior Clinic a thorough medical history will be taken and the questionnaire discussed, followed by a detailed examination. A free urine test will also be performed and we offer a discounted blood pressure monitoring and blood sample checks. Taking all these findings into account, the nurse will then discuss any appropriate follow up care, which may sometimes require a follow up appointment with one of our Veterinary Surgeons.
We hope that the Senior Clinic will help your pets as they progress into their senior years. By making subtle changes to exercise and feeding regimes, as well as recommending tips to help you manage any underlying conditions and prescribing medication (where required), our nurses can help you improve your pet’s quality of life.
Please ask any of the team for details of current clinics and to make a FREE appointment for your senior pet.
