As we age our health needs change. The same is true for our pets. At Black River Veterinary Hospital we recommend a minimum of bi-annual visits for senior pets. At these visits our veterinarians can assess your pet’s health and needs. As they complete their physical examination they may notice changes in your pet that are subtle but significant.

Our doctors may recommend lab work, radiographs, or ultrasound in an attempt to detect problems early. In addition, the orthopedic aspect of the physical examination will help the veterinarian detect issues like arthritis, a common ailment for our aging furry friends. We offer a wide variety of services and treatment plans that can help keep pets comfortable and happy in their golden years.

If you have questions about your senior pet, please contact us today. One of our dedicated staff will be happy to assist you.
