Tammy's routine senior check up
As dogs get older it is easy to notice the outside changes such as white hairs around the muzzle, decreased activity and difficulty getting up. It is harder to notice the internal changes that are occurring too. These changes include changes to the kidneys, heart and other aged related diseases. Pet owners are in the best position to look out for early warning signs of ageing and age related diseases. Some examples of such signs are change in appetite, discomfort on rising or after exercise, weight loss or gain, excessive drinking and/ or urination, and persistent cough.
Tammy (pictured) has been having her senior check ups every 6 months in the last few years. As a result, diseases have been detected early and treatment were given. Today Tammy got the all clear from her senior check up, her diseases are being managed successfully and are not causing her any discomfort anymore. This also gave Tammy's owner peace of mind knowing Tammy is comfortable in her twilight years.
