Research over the past few years has shown that the ageing process can affect cats’ and dogs’ health once they reach 8 years of age and their dietary requirements change. The effects of this process can often be subtle, but can be picked up at an early stage; giving you the opportunity to maintain your pet’s quality of life.
Our Senior Pet Clinics allow our Veterinary Nurses to discuss preventative health care for your pet, discuss any concerns you may have and help you keep your pet healthy for longer.
A consultation at the clinic is completely free of charge, and includes a urine test. We hope that you will find this new service very useful. To make an appointment, simply phone the surgery and ask for a “Senior Pet Clinic” appointment with one of our Veterinary Nurses.
Please note that this is a free discussion with one of our Veterinary Nurses on senior pet healthcare, not for any other problems or ongoing conditions.
If you are able to, please could you collect a fresh urine sample and bring that along to the appointment also. Urine sample pots are available to collect free from reception or a dry clean container will be fine, but not jam or honey jars as these often contain sugar! If the urine sample is collected earlier on in the day, please could you refrigerate the sample until the appointment. If your pet is currently undergoing treatment with the vet, please check with your vet before making your appointment.
