Elderly pets require closer monitoring. Dr. Mills recommends geriatric monitoring which includes routine blood and lab work in order to help catch medical conditions early so that they can be treated and a course of action can be taken to slow or stop the onset of the condition. Many conditions geriatric pets face include kidney disease, cancer, arthritis, endocrine disorders, dental disease, and many more. In addition, Dr. Mills will help you determine a game plan for your aging pet which can include diet changes, weight loss programs, routine health monitoring, and medical therapy for health conditions.
In addition, many geriatric pets require frequent monitoring and treatment for various conditions, Dr. Mills can ease the difficulty of frequent trips to the vet clinic by providing these services in the convenience of your own home. For patients that require frequent testing or treatments, the staff at Mills Mobile Veterinary Services can work out a treatment plan tailored to your needs. For our frequent flyer patients, pricing can be adjusted for short visits.
