Senior Pet Health Month

September is Senior Pet Health Month….We often hear people say that their pets are “just getting old” or “slowing down”…they take this change for granted, and while it is true that pets will face age related changes just as people do, there are lots of things that can be done to help improve the quality of life for our senior pets. Supplements and pain medications can help put the spring back in their step. There are specialized harnesses and other products that can aid those pets that need a little extra assistance getting around. Therapies such as cold laser, massage, acupuncture and chiropractic care can also make a difference in their quality of life.

Often our pets will try to hide signs of pain or illness – it’s part of their DNA from a time when that could make a life or death difference. Because of this and the fact that they age much faster than humans, we recommend annual labwork to help catch problems in the early stages.

To help promote the many ways we can help our senior pets, we are doing one of our special raffles – during the month of September, have a Senior Wellness Panel (labwork) run on your pet and receive an entry into the raffle. Our prize baskets include a free Senior Wellness panel for next year, a free blood pressure check, a certificate for a pet massage session and some other senior pet goodies!
