Senior Dog Care & Pet Health 
Advances in health care have resulted in extended life expectancy of humans as well as our dog and cat companions. Yet, we and our pets are naturally programmed to age.  On a cellular level, we have an aging “clock” that counts down and arrests the cell cycle.  Aging is not a disease.  It is a process that involves a progressive loss of functional reserve capacity in the body’s major organ systems. 
We know that aging predisposes dogs and cats to certain diseases.  However, a proactive approach to geriatric health issues through regular screening promotes early detection of abnormalities resulting in enhanced quality of life and longevity. 
It is reported that 39% of the pet population in the US is greater than 7 years old.  Yet, only about 14% of senior animals undergo regular health screening.  If senior wellness examinations are started in middle age, it establishes a baseline for future comparison.  Testing yearly in middle age patients is comparable to seeing your doctor every 4-5 years.  However, once an animal is geriatric, routine health care visits are recommended every six months.  This would be like seeing your doctor every 2-3 human years.

Lexy's "Aged To Perfection" campaign is offering two ways you can keep your eyes firmly on the health of your cat or dog furbaby.

Yaletown Pet Hospital is dedicated to overall animal wellness, treating a pet's body and paying extra attention to ther emotional well being as well.  Of particular focus in senior pet health.
One of the best things pet owners can do for thier furbabies is to schedule regular Veterinary care. Full checkups become even more important as our pets age. Geriatric Panels offer amazing insight into your pets overall health.

A geriatric panel is a diagnostic tool that our veterinarians use to look inside your pet and assess their overall health. 
A panel can be performed when a pet is otherwise healthy to help detect early illness/disease before noticeable symptoms become apparent. Normal results give your veterinarian a baseline for your pet.

To begin a small amount of blood and urine is collected from your pet. This will provide a lot of useful information about your pet’s health.  
The geriatric panel can produce results related to liver, kidney, pancreas, and thyroid.

Routine testing is important, catching illness in its early stages can make treatment easier, more effective and less costly.
