Senior Dog Care

These older guys do require a little more attention, but this is okay, they have earned it! Senior pets often start to show signs of arthritis (often falsely perceived as "slowing down" due to age); decreased vision, decreased hearing and they may be developing lumps and bumps on their skin. More of a concern or those things we cannot see just by looking at them. Therefore, it is very important that we perform blood screening at least annually to look for problems that may be occurring silently. Most of the time, we hope, these tests are perfectly normal. Early detection is the key to many of the common diseases and in fact some may be prevented all together!
