As most people know, our pets age faster than we do. That's why it is so easy for us to forget that they need the same kind of medical attention that we need as we age. Of course it varies from patient to patient, but as pets age they start to have the same issues we do. Their teeth start to accumulate tartar and infection, they can develop arthritis, they can start to lose their sight and hearing, and they can develop issues with their internal systems. This is why it is so important to bring in your pets for their yearly exams, so these problems can be detected early and treatment can be started before the issues are irreversible. For diagnostic options we can provide to your senior pet, please give us a call at 217-342-7444 and we will be happy to discuss these with you and provide you with an estimate.
