Getting Older Means Going to the Vet More Often
While annual check-ups are important for pets of all ages, making more frequent vet visits is especially important for mature pets. We consider pets that are seven years old and older to be senior-aged pets. At this stage in their lives, dogs and cats are more susceptible to contracting health issues, including the following:
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- Certain types of cancer
We recommend bringing your senior pet to our facility at least twice a year for head-to-tail examinations and evaluations, vaccinations and lab tests. Routine visits to Laurel allow our veterinary team to stay on top of your senior pet’s health and keep you in the know about any potential ailments.
