Why Senior Dogs and Cats Need More Frequent Checkups
Our pets get a little more fragile when they’re older, and their health can change very rapidly. To anticipate any sudden changes and to make sure there are no major health concerns, we may recommend that your pet see us a little more frequently, such as every 6 months instead of every 12 months. Staying on top of their care and making sure your pet is living comfortably and in good spirits is very important to us. We encourage you to contact our hospital whenever you have concerns or questions.
