How old is your pet? Dogs and cats are considered seniors between 5 and 9 years of age, depending on the breed, and at this age, their health care needs change and require more attention. There are also many conditions that senior pets are more prone to, such as arthritis, diabetes, and dental disease. To accommodate these changes, Bogue Animal Hospital recommends that your senior pet see us at least twice a year. This will allow us to better monitor their health from visit to visit and to make any recommendations for treatment, if necessary. As a practice, part of our mission is to make it both affordable and convenient for you to care for your aging pets during those critical golden years. With our Senior Wellness Program for canines and for felines, we’re able to achieve that mission.
Each Senior Wellness Program stresses the importance of early detection of developing conditions, preventative maintenance, diet and exercise management, and problem management of existing conditions in senior pets. With breed-specific guidelines, each wellness program includes over 10 specific examinations and screenings. These include comprehensive physical and dental exams every six months and annual internal parasite testing, blood counts, and glaucoma screening—all at discounted rates, with enrollment in the program. The program also includes a treatment schedule to help you plan and budget for your pet’s senior care.
We’re proud to be your pet’s wellness through every life stage, and we encourage you to consider establishing a wellness baseline for them using our Senior Wellness Program. Schedule an appointment today at (316) 722-1085 to learn more, and thank you in advance for being proactive about your senior pet’s health. Your pet thanks you, too.
