Your Dog or Cat is Considered a ‘Senior’ at Age Seven
October is Senior Pet’s Wellness Month at Animal Medical Clinics of Quincy. According to Dr. Robert Reich a cat or a dog is considered to be a senior pet at the age or 7 and with it comes the need for its owners to understand that the pet’s medical needs will need to be changed to “senior status”.
Regular wellness screenings for senior pets can mean adding years to the pet’s life. According to Dr.Reich most people don’t realize that a once a year vet check for their pet is the equivalent of a person seeing his or her doctor once every seven years and a lot can happen to your pet in that time.
Most people hold off visiting the veterinarian simply because of costs involved. With that in mind, during Senior Pet Wellness Month (or the rest of October) the Animal Medical Clinics of Quincy, located at 2803 Wisman Lane in Quincy, is offering a wellness pet exam for senior cats and dogs ages 7 and older for just $49. This is a $220 value.
This price will include a complete physical examination, weight check, blood work screening, arthritis screening, check for lumps and bumps, coat and skin check, vision and dental checks. Plus there will be a free gift for your pet.
