Take the opportunity to clear up any doubts you may have about the health of your elderly pet..
As with people in their ‘Golden age’, our senior pets can develop health issues: kidney, liver, heart, thyroid or cáncer among many others. Rapid detection is very important so that our loyal companion is affected as Little as posible. The best treatment is an early diagnosis. For this reason we have developed a specific campaign for our older pets.
It begins with a series of questions about any small changes you may have noticed, but not given any importance to. However, they can indicate that something is not quite right–examples include weight loss, drinking and urinating more than before, getting more tired than usual.
Then we move on to a complete physical examination including eyes, ears, heart and lungs, dermatological(we can assess any possible growths), muscular, neurological, rectal, genital and dental.
Next we take a Little blood from your pet to do a complete analysis for early detection of any sign of illnesses that can go undetected. We also ask you to bring a urine and faeces sample taken on the day of the check-up to look for any changes or internal parasites.
Finally, given that older animals are more prone to heart problems, we do two digital x rays of the thorax to check the heart and lungs for any possible changes
We advise these tests for the following reasons:
1º.- Many illnesses aren’t visible until they are very advanced.
2º.- Illnesses detected in time are easier to control or cure, improving the quality, and perhaps length, of life of your pet.
3º.- Because it is more economical. An illness detected in its early stages needs less tests for diagnosis, less check-ups to control it and less medication to keep it at bay.
4º.- The best medicine is preventative medicine. Dont wait till an illness develops to act.
MAKE THE MOST OF THIS OCCASION TO CLARIFY ANY DOUBTS ABOUT YOUR ELDERLY PET.
