We are always seeking to improve the services we provide for your pets. Often a senior (6-8 years of age) pet's ailments are just seen as ‘them’ getting old. As pets reach their golden years, there are a variety of conditions and diseases that they can face, including weight and mobility changes; osteoarthritis; kidney, heart, and liver disease; tumours and cancers; hormone disorders such as diabetes and thyroid imbalance; and many others. Early detection is essential to assist in disease prevention, reduce suffering and greatly prolong lifespan.
At Old Mill Vet we have now developed a Senior Program to help assist your ageing pet. If your pet shows any of the followings, then it is time to come in and see us.
