Pets, on average, age five to eight times faster than humans. By age two, most pets have already reached adulthood. At age four, many are entering middle age. By age seven, many dogs, particularly larger breeds, are entering their senior years.
With the rapid aging of pets relative to humans there are changes that can occur in a short amount of time; including potentially serious conditions such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, arthritis and heart disease
Annual health checks can help your veterinarian diagnose, treat or even prevent problems before they become life-threatening.
Along with health checks we also recommend further diagnostic health screens including blood, urine and parasite tests. This is particularly recommended for our senior pets.
Annual health check are also a great opportunity to ask us about nutrition, behaviour or any other issues.
