Senior Wellness

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:

  • Hematocrit
  • KCS (Dry Eye Syndrome)
  • Urinalysis
  • Glaucoma Testing*
  • Boarding for the Day
  • Two Screening X-Rays
  • Toe Nail Trim
