September at Dublin Animal Hospital is our Senior Wellness Month- a month designed to address the specific concerns and problems of our senior pets. We try to screen all pets past the age of 7 years for any underlying “senior” problems.  Scheduling your pet for a Senior Wellness exam focuses on preventing the four major causes of death in older animals: heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and cancer.  The doctors and staff at Dublin Animal Hospital are dedicated to providing your pet with the highest level of care throughout all stages of life.
