The first step in the health of your pet starts with being informed about areas you can focus on. Preventive care is vital. Ensuring your pet's diet and nutrition is just what they need goes a long way in extending their life. A key sign related to their health is the overall dental health of your pet. Dental disease can be signs of heart or kidney problems. It is also important to get vaccinations on time and keep them up-to-date. We will also recommend an annual examination to find changes in the health of your pet as part of a preventative care plan.
Senior Pet Care
Much like humans, the older the pet, the more frequent examinations need to be performed. During a senior pet exam, all physical aspects of your pet will be inspected. Their fecal matter may also be examined, this is important to find possible intestinal parasites.
The general overall health of your pet is associated with their oral health. Unfortunately, many pet parents don't know when their pet is experiencing dental problems. You want to bring them in when you notice changes in their appetite, when they refuse to eat or when there has been a dramatic drop in their weight. They could also drop food that they put in their mouth or have excessive drooling. Other early warning sign include bad breath or even tooth loss.
Laser therapy may be an option for your pet. Low-level laser therapy helps treat musculoskeletal pain that your pet may experience. It will also help reduce inflammation that may occur from wound healing. Laser therapy can also help with bacterial and viral infections. The purpose of laser therapy is to minimize incision-reducing damage to your pet and assisting in recovery time.
