We all age, it’s a fact of life; but wouldn’t we all like to do it with grace and dignity? Animals are inherently better at hiding the progression of disease, chronic illness and aging than we humans are. Often times as owners we do not notice the gradual transition from our crazy wild pups and kittens to our slower moving senior dogs and cats. A fresh set of eyes that are trained to picking up on subtle differences can notice the changes in your pets behavior or movements as well as what you mention during the exam that you have become accustomed to and never really thought they were a problem. There are many chronic inflammatory processes that we can assist you and your pet through to slow their progression and decrease the limitations they place on your pets activities… our goal is to allow our senior pets to enjoy an active and pain free life for as long as possible.
To accomplish this senior pets are evaluated more often and more thoroughly with physical exams, bloodwork, urinalysis, imaging, blood pressure checks, glaucoma screening and proactive dental care. Most importantly we want to hear what your concerns are regarding changes in their routine, appetite, comfort and activity so we may guide you on the best ways to keep them happy. At AMCC age is not a disease!!
