Health Checks

Health Checklist
  • Pets, on average, age five to eight times faster than humans
  • By age two, most pets have already reached adulthood.
  • At age four, many are entering middle age.
  • By age seven, many dogs, particularly larger breeds, are entering their senior years

Because pets age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time. The risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, heart disease and other serious conditions all increase with age.

Today’s pets are living longer than ever, chances are that many may experience a potentially serious illness during their lifetime. Biannual health checks can help your veterinarian diagnose, treat or even prevent problems before they become life-threatening.
They’re also a great opportunity to ask us about nutrition, behaviour or any other issues.

These are the important annual health screenings we recommend for dogs and cats:

Adult dogs and cats (1- 6 years)

  • Vaccinations
  • Parasite check
  • Heart check
  • Dental health check
  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests

Additional exams for senior dogs and cats (7+ years)

  • Osteoarthritis check
  • Renal disease screen
  • Chest radiograph
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Thyroid check
  • Blood pressure check
