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:

  • Dental Disease
  • Arthritis
  • Kidney Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Liver Disease
  • Diseases of the endocrine system (e.g. Hyperthyroidism)

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

Friday cuteness is Golden retriever puppies! 🐾😍🐕

First time mum Jelso, got on with things and after 5 hours had produced nine lovely babies, 3 girls and 6 boys. Vet nurse Andrea was midwife for this special litter last week as her lovely boy, Bandit, is the dad, and one of these cute little bundles will be coming home to her place in about 8 weeks time. Plenty of time to puppy proof the new property and to think of names!

This is how Bandit feels after becoming a Dad, exhausted! 🥰

Update on Rolf. 🐾😍
Its been 4 ½ weeks since Rolf had his back surgery and things are going very well. The after care of a spinal surgery is very strict and we were happy to be able to support Rolf and his owner through this intensive period. Now that Rolf is at home the care continues with structured rest periods and minimal outside time for another two weeks. Rolf’s exercise will then be slowly increased as his co-ordination and flexibility continue to improve. Happy faces all round 😄

Baby Alpaca Alert! 😍
It is a real treat us to have a large animal patient in the small animal clinic. Vet nurse, Jess, was happy to cuddle the 4 days old cria while Dr Cecilia prepared her for minor surgery. She has made a full recovery and went home afterwards, back to her mum.

That collection point ends today. There is a container being arranged specifically for these crafts to go over from NZ. www.facebook.com/groups/475790746445055/

Rescue craft co have started a Facebook group. They are based in Aussie and have a few places there to send stuff to. I'm getting stuck into bat wraps and bird nests this weekend. They have patterns on their page.
