VCA Fairleigh Animal Hospital

Adult and Senior Wellness

Because our pets age at a quicker pace than we humans do, it is important that they receive appropriate preventative care, along with early detection screenings to identify any health concerns or diseases in their earliest stages.

Pets aged 7 years or older should visit their veterinarian twice a year for wellness exams. These exams are the key to detecting any health problems that could endanger your pet. Our pets are susceptible to some of the ailments that aging humans face, such as cancer, diabetes, kidney complications, liver and intestinal disorders, arthritis, dental disease and vision impairment.

You can be your pet’s best advocate when it comes to their health. Keep a watchful eye for anything unusual or out of character for your dog or cat.

Some warning signs to watch out for include:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Excessive drinking or urination
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy
  • Behavioral changes
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Skin lumps, growths or irritation
  • Bad breath, plaque on teeth or bleeding gums
  • Ear odors, ear redness, or scratching at the ears
  • Lameness or sensitivity
