Senior Wellness Program Procedures

Annual Exam

An exam is not just a chance for the vet to see how cute your pet is. A thorough physical exam can pick up a variety of illnesses and prevent potential catastrophic diseases.  By diagnosing and treating your pet early, your pet will live a longer and healthier life.

Fecal Parasite Test

This is a microscopic evaluation of your pet’s stool performed annually, which tests for giardia, hookworms, roundworms, and other internal parasites.

Silver Whiskers Blood Panel

For senior dogs and cats we perform tests for not only kidney and liver functions, but also a thyroid test and urinalysis. Accompanying this will be a blood pressure check. We want to make sure that the internal systems of your pet are as healthy as what we can see on the outside!
