If your dog is more than seven years of age, or your cat is more than ten years of age, he or she is now in their geriatric years. There is some variation between breeds of dogs. We will be happy to discuss with you recommendations for geriatric health assessments and nutrition.
Geriatric wellness profiles are important for maintaining your pet’s best health in their senior years. A geriatric profile includes complete comprehensive blood work and urinalysis. This is particularly important in senior pets as internal systems can be first to show signs of aging. Early identification is important for treating or managing some of these diseases.
