Senior Pet Wellness Club

Wild cats live up to 8 years with an average lifespan of 5 years. Stray dogs live up to 10 years with an average lifespan of 8 years. Our loved pets live much longer, but in their advanced years may suffer from age-related conditions. In many cases we can treat these problems to make these “old” years “happy” years and keep them younger, longer! The sooner problems are diagnosed, the sooner treatment is started and the more we can help!

 

As pets age, they can become prone to developing certain types of diseases:

Regular checkups with your veterinarian will help detect any health problems early

The earlier these problems are identified the more can be done to help.
This is where Cambridge Vets and the “Senior Pet Wellness Club” can help.
We can provide a more pro-active approach to senior animal care through an individualised wellness programme for your pet.
Registration is free and you are always in control. You can decide on how involved you would like to be and how much you get out of it. As a member, you can enjoy several benefits including:

  • Regular newsletters
  • Special discounts on certain products and services
  • A healthcare plan specifically designed to keep your pet as healthy as possible.
  • Individualised check-ups, reminders and follow-ups.
  • Opportunity to enter competitions and win prizes.
  • Being kept informed with the latest developments with new products and veterinary care.

Remember, pets age about 7 times faster than humans, so a trip to the vet once a year for your pet is like a trip to the doctors every 7 years for us.

Providing optimal care for Senior Pets:

  • Intervention will be of more benefit if instituted early
  • Promotes early detection of abnormalities (even in the apparently normal pet)
  • Promotes individualised medical care to enhance quality & length of life
  • Acknowledges & enhances the human-animal bond

Not All Super Heroes Wear Capes! 💖🐾
Super heroes come in all shapes and sizes but when it comes to canine blood donors, we are very fortunate to have access to two wonderful staff dogs who are universal donors.
Very much like people who are O negative, the universal canine blood donor’s blood is the variety needed to offer the lowest risk of causing serious reactions for most dogs who receive it.
Overall, 7-10% of dogs are universal donors. Interestingly, a large number of greyhounds are considered universal blood donors and as their blood is higher in red blood cells, it is a good option for a critically sick patient.
Bruce Wayne is a very appropriately named and much loved, family pet of Dr Helen. As he is part greyhound, and very laid back, this makes him an ideal donor. At the start of the recent lockdown period, Bruce’s super powers came into play. At, eight years of age, Bruce’s age is at the upper limit of being able to give blood but he is a healthy, fit and active, large dog, whose universal blood was very gratefully received.
Over the years, his donations have saved many lives. Thanks Bruce, you have really lived up to your name!
Axel, the 50kg Rhodesian ridgeback is our other super hero! Axel, owned by Kelvin our trading manager, ticks all the boxes when it comes to blood donation. He is a young, fit and healthy, large breed dog, who is also a universal donor. Thanks Axel, you are our favourite kind of blood donor!
Thanks Axel and Bruce, you both deserve a bit of extra pampering for you kind donations.
The perfect blood donor would be greater than 25kgs, between 2-8 years of age and have a relaxed friendly nature.
If you think that you might like your dog to go on our register as a blood donor then please contact the clinic for further information.

What!!!! Our female cat is called Neville and I thought sure that would be top cats name!!! 😂😂

I reckon Luna is a pretty popular animal name .....Io however is pretty out there

Not going to beat Five for a cat - umbrella academy character plus she’s a polydactyl 😺

I thought naming a cat after a marauding Viking would be more popular but Ragnar will have to continue his pillaging on the unpopular list 😂

(Three hours later) I'm still scanning the list for how Megwich is ranked... Malcolm French

Maureen Atkinson 👍🏻😂

Taylor Bourke Caitlin Bourke

Lots of boring names on the lists! 🤣

Tamzyn Templer Bella goes hard

Isabella, you made a list girl 😂

Janet Archibald whoops

Kylie Harcourt just missing Basil
