November is National Senior Pet Health Month!

Help us celebrate National Senior Pet Health Month! Throughout November, we are honoring senior pets with 25% off checkups. Our goal is to ensure your loved one is in optimal health throughout their golden years!

Our main concerns with older pets are: weight, nutrition, pain and organ diseases. As a result, we believe senior pets should have semi-annual veterinary visits instead of just annual visits in order to promote early detection and keep your pets happy! Controlling weight and pain as well as early detection of organ disease is the easiest way to ensure a healthier and happier life for your furry friends.

Did you know arthritis is the most common problem to slow your pet down? If your dog or cat seems to have any arthritic signs lasting more than two weeks you should schedule a senior checkup. Just because they are getting older doesn’t mean they should be in pain! There are a number of ways to keep your pets pain-free such as proper nutrition, medication, exercise and alternative therapies. 

When you bring your senior pet in for a checkup and treatment is needed, we will always review with you the costs, benefits and risks of various treatment options. Sometimes it is as easy as changing their diet to get their puppy or kitten energy and enthusiasm back! 

To honor and highlight our senior pets all month long, we’re running an Instagram contest! Be sure to post your pet photo on either Facebook or Instagram and use hashtag #AspenSilverPaws to be entered to win a $50 Visa Gift Card! The winner will be announced November 30th.

Happy Senior Pet Health Month!
