Senior Pet Wellness Month Specials
September 8, 2016
September is Senior Pet Wellness Month. Cats become seniors around nine years of age, while dogs are considered seniors at just seven years.
We would love to help your senior pet stay healthy and happy. Senior pets are more susceptible to disease and injury, which can be treated more effectively with preventive care. Celebrate Senior Pet Wellness by bringing your senior cat or senior dog in for a routine lab screening.
Save 25% on Senior Pet Wellness Labwork
From September 12-26, Senior pet Wellness Screens are just $75, a 25% savings. Senior pets are 7+ years old.
This visit includes:
- Complete blood count
- Chemistry profile
Special Price for Young Adult Wellness Labwork
Preventive care is important at all stages of your pet’s life. So, we don’t want to leave out the younger pets! From September 26 – October 10, bring in your young adult pet (age 6 or younger) for a Wellness Screen at the special price of $50.
This visit includes:
- Complete blood count
- Chemistry profile
Offer only valid with routine check-ups/ healthy pets. This wellness screen does not include care for pets who are ill. Please call (513) 829-8989 to make an appointment and to discuss any questions you have about our special offers.
Learn more about senior pet health in Vet Street’s article, “How to Help Your Dog or Cat Age Gracefully:”
Pets age much the same as we do but at an accelerated rate. In order to help offset this faster aging process and detect potentially serious age-related diseases and conditions at the earliest stages, most veterinarians recommend that healthy senior dogs and cats be examined every six months. Scheduling these regular wellness exams is one of the most important steps you can take to keep your senior pet healthy. Why? Because the earlier your pet’s health problems are detected, the more options you and your veterinarian have to either cure them, slow their progression or help keep your pet more comfortable.
