September is Senior Wellness Month at Cimarron Animal Hospital Tucson– a month dedicated to addressing the specific concerns and problems of our senior pets. We try to screen all pets past the age of 9 years for any underlying “senior” problems. As a direct result of vaccinations, neutering and improved nutrition, our pets are living longer and fuller lives. With the blessing of longer life comes the reality of a higher incidence of age related diseases.
Our senior wellness program focuses on early identification and prevention of the most common causes of death and disabiity in older animals: heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, thyroid disease, diabetes. This program allows us to detect problems before they become critical.
Senior Wellness Comprehensive Exams at Cimarron Animal Hospital include:
- Complete Physical Exam
- Complete Blood Count
- Diagnostic Chemistry
- Pancreatitis Screen
- Cardiac Screen
- Thyroid Screen
- Diabetes Screen
- Nutritional Counseling
- Weight Management
- Pain Management (arthritis is common in both cats and dogs!)
- Preliminary Arthritis Screening option
