Early Detection for Optimal Health

Regular exams for senior pets are essential for early detection and intervention as their health needs change. Dr. Sherrod and her exceptional team will perform comprehensive check-ups to monitor your pet’s overall health, allowing us to identify any potential issues promptly.

We recommend bloodwork to assess organ function and screen for age- related diseases. Early detection through these routine exams and diagnostics can significantly improve your senior pet’s prognosis.
