P.A.W.S – Prevention And Wellness for Seniors
At Dundee Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing the highest level of care to all pets. As our pets mature, attention to specific heath concerns becomes a higher priority. As pets enter senior years, they are at risk of developing diseases common to senior human counterparts, such as diabetes, cataracts, arthritis, hypothyroidism and cancer. These diseases can go unnoticed in their early stages and many develop rapidly, making regular monitoring and blood testing very important.
As your pet’s care provider, you play a key role in maintaining your pet’s health because you know your pet better than anyone else. With your watchful eye and our medical care, we can establish baseline information, identify illnesses early and provide effective treatment to help your pet avoid serious or life-threatening conditions.
How old is your pet, really?
The health of your pet can change rapidly as he or she ages. Therefore, preventive healthcare is very important.
