It should be comforting to know that our animal companions are living healthier, longer lives than ever before due to the advances in veterinary medicine. Health care for your older pet goes beyond vaccines, parasite control, dental care and good nutrition. Senior pets often mask symptoms and are slow to show signs of illness and discomfort. Our healthcare program seeks to promote good health and prevent, or at least slow, disease in older dogs and cats by focusing on the body systems that are most affected by aging. We are concerned about the quality of life of your pet, and we strive to make early diagnoses of problems so that they may be promptly treated.
Hazel Ridge Veterinary Clinic offers a Golden Age Program for Dogs and a Golden Age Program for Cats. These programs offer comprehensive health care at a reduced cost for our special older patients. When you register for this program, your pet will be covered for the following for eighteen (18) full months:
Three (3) full physical examinations including behavior and nutritional counseling (every 6 months);
One (1) blood profile including chemistries, CBC and thyroid tests. These tests help in the diagnosis of cancer, infections, and anemia, and also check the functional status of the liver, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal and thyroid glands, and the immune system;
One (1) urinalysis to check for evidence of infection and to assess kidney function;
One (1) fecal test for parasites and blood;
One (1) blood pressure screening.
Additionally, all dogs will receive:
One (1) Heartworm/Lyme/Ehrlichia screening test;
The Golden Age Program is a prepaid, non-refundable program. The Golden Age Program for dogs is offered for $438.60, a savings of $50.00. The Golden Age Program for Cats if offered for $390.85, a savings of $50.00.
In addition to these savings, our Golden Age pets qualify for a 10% discount on any further needed physical examinations, vaccinations and dental procedures; and a 5% discount on all further tests, medications, special diets, surgeries, medical procedures and hospitalizations for the covered eighteen (18) months. This program cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts offered at Hazel Ridge Veterinary Clinic.
