Most pets reach “middle age” around the age of 6. As in humans, more frequent checkups are recommended as pets age. Pets age at a rate of 3.5 human years every 6 months!
This mid-year exam focuses primarily on detecting abnormalities that occur at a greater frequency in senior years, but commonly go undetected without medical testing. Identifying abnormalities early can add YEARS to your pet’s life, and save money on healthcare costs.
Age-related conditions we test for include: Diabetes, Anemia, Cardiac Arrhythmia, Abdominal Masses, Glaucoma (and other eye diseases), Urinary Tract Infection, and Kidney Disease.
Manchaca Village Veterinary Care’s 6-month senior visit includes an exam, and the following diagnostics for pets that are dropped off:
- KCS (Dry Eye Syndrome)
- Glaucoma Testing*
- Boarding for the Day
- Two Screening X-Rays
- Toe Nail Trim
