Pet of the Month for April 2020
Stella is a 7 year old Labrador that came in for her yearly checkup with Doctor Leakey. It is important to have yearly physical checkups every year to make sure your pet is healthy on the outside and on the inside. These checkups can help discover possible visible or non visible issues that were not noticed a year back. Stella recently turned 7 years old , which is what we consider “senior age”. At this age we like to recommend doing a “Total Health Profile”. The Total Health Profile is a blood work panel that gets sent out to a lab that can help detect issues that are common with older dogs. Diseases like; Thyroid Disease, Kidney Disease, Diabetes, and even more. Stella is still very spunky and isnt letting her new senior status change her puppy like attitude!
