When your pet reaches 8 years of age you will be invited to attend a Senior Wellness appointment, with Sarah our qualified senior pet nurse. Sarah has completed training in senior pet care since qualifying in 2010 and more recently a certificate in feline nursing.
Each appointment has a dedicated 30 minute time slot and appointments are available various days and times of the week, running most Wednesday evenings. Please contact the surgery for more information on availability. Your appointment can be booked at the same time as the annual booster vaccination with the vet. The consultation including urine assessment is £10.
The consultation is an individual experience focused on the requirements and needs of you and your pet in a friendly and relaxed environment. It will include blood pressure measurement and urine testing, please bring a urine sample along to your appointment. Other areas that may be discussed include weight, diet, dental hygiene, mobility, behaviour, senile changes, parasite treatment and lumps or bumps.
Age is not a disease but with many age-related conditions early diagnosis can be better supported with the possibility of slowing down the progression of certain symptoms.
We aim to provide our elderly patients with the gold standard care they deserve throughout their old age and support for their humans too.
