September is senior pet health month at Harradine Vets

 

 

By the age of eight our pets are entering their senior years. As our pets age the risk of arthritis, obesity, diabetes, dental disease, heart disease and other serious conditions increase with time.

Early detection is the key to management of these diseases. We recommend regular health checks (once to twice yearly) to assess your pets health condition. In addition to thorough physical examination some of the tools we use to manage your senior pet include:

  • Establishing baseline blood work
  • Urinalysis
  • Dental treatment
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Arthritis management including pain relief, Zydex or Pentosan injections and nutritional supplements

For the month of September we are offering 10% off arthritis supplements and joint health diets. We will also have sample packs for your pets.
