Senior Care

Cats and dogs are naturally inclined to fall back on their ancestral behavior. In the wild, weak or sick animals must hide their limitations in order to avoid predators who prey on the frailer animals. Instinctively cats and dogs hide illness well, turning veterinarians into detectives. Consistent visits allow a veterinarian to identify an illness that your pet may be trying to mask. Kidney disease, diabetes, and hypothyroidism (dogs) hyperthyroidism (cats) are common in senior pets and treatments are available if detected early. By detecting, treating, and preventing problems before they become life threatening, we can help to extend the life of your favorite four-legged family member.

Routine checkups, dietary changes and alterations to your pet’s home environment will allow for your senior animal to live a healthier, longer life. Keeping a wary eye on your aging pet’s behaviors and physical appearance are both things you also should be aware of. Noticing these changes can allow for a quicker diagnosis when visiting your pet’s doctor for an examination. Senior pets require special needs because of how quickly they age. It is important that these family members receive complete health screenings as part of their routine medical care. Blood tests can provide a detailed look at your pet's health from the inside. With these blood tests, veterinarians can check for anemia, infection, diabetes, liver and kidney and thyroid disease.

Ultrasound

Veterinary ultrasound is painless, non-invasive and allows us to see tissues not otherwise possible and can show more detail than an X-ray. Ultrasound does not involve any radiation such as x-rays. An ultrasound machine uses sound waves to penetrate internal organs rather than radiation as in the case on x-rays. These sound waves are transmitted at a much higher frequency than we can hear. It can help confirm a diagnosis. Guided by the image of the ultrasound, a veterinarian can obtain a small tissue sample (biopsy) by making a small incision and inserting a needle and withdrawing fluid to be sent for analysis. Since air impedes ultrasound waves, any hair must be shaven away first. The fur will trap air and deflect the waves. Gel is applied on the area to be viewed to block out air between the receiver and the patient. Depending upon the length of the ultrasound procedure, if the pet is apprehensive about clippers or if a biopsy is necessary, sedation or anesthesia may be required. Staff members have been trained and certified to proper ultrasound examinations. These examinations are then sent off to a board certified radiologist to confirm diagnosis along with your veterinarian.
