Unfortunately, the ageing process can be difficult on the body. Health issues are more common in older animals and can very easily go undetected by owners, especially if the change has been gradual. Annual health exams for your senior dog are incredibly important to allow for early detection of disease, to discuss lifestyle changes, and to find individualized medical care that may enhance the quality of life.
Depending on your dog’s breed, a dog is considered to be a senior around seven years old.
How should I care for my senior dog? (example: schedule regular check-ups, exercise, special diet, etc.)
Each dog should be treated as a unique case and evaluated based on their breed, lifestyle and clinical history. Annual health exams help to detect diseases early on and provide guidance on how to best care for your ageing pet.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
