Senior Pet Care Program is Here!

By April 17, 2014 April 23rd, 2014 Uncategorized

Dear Clients,
We would like to let you know about an exciting new program that will debut this August.

In our ongoing effort to provide the highest level of care for your furry family members we have initiated a new program for our senior pets.

The program incorporates a series of services which are intended to screen our older pets for common illnesses associated with aging. The hope is that our older pets will have not only enjoy a longer life but will spend their golden years in increased comfort. Our Senior Care Program begins with a comprehensive nose to tail physical exam. Areas of concentration include the eyes, skin, ears, neurologic and orthopedic exam to evaluate if your pet is showing signs of arthritis and to what degree and other age-related changes.

The program then goes one step further to evaluate how your pet is doing on the inside. How can we evaluate this? We use a combination of blood work, urinalysis and radiographs (x-rays). We will also evaluate your pet’s blood pressure, which, if allowed to get too high can cause sudden blindness.

Our doctors will sit down with you to review the results of the exam and diagnostics and then work with you to establish a custom plan based on your pets needs.

Interested in enrolling your pet in the program? Please contact us at (703) 777-6661.
