October is SENIOR PET MONTH at Brookline Animal Hospital

Do you have a senior pet?

This varies based on size but generally we put any pet over 7 years in the category as a senior. With the progression of veterinary medicine our pets are living longer than they used to….

Along with annual physical examination, one way in which we can extend their life is to screen for disease processes. Detecting a health concern early can make management of the disease easier.

What are we checking?

When we perform screening tests we evaluate for abnormalities in the function of organs such as kidney and liver and also screen for diabetes.

What to watch for at home…

  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in water consumption
  • Changes urination or defecation
  • Change in behavior
  • Weight loss
  • Vocalizing

Please bring your senior pet in during the month of October and save 20% off your pet’s senior screen!
