Senior Wellness Visits


As your pet becomes older, Marshfield Veterinary Service has developed a health monitoring system to promote health and prevent disease.  Proper care includes: annual wellness exams, vaccinations, parasite control, dental examinations and cleanings, regular exercise, and good nutrition.  For all pets older than 7 years of age, we recommend a senior or mature diet that is highly digestible, high in protein and fiber, and also contain antioxidants and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for skin and haircoat health.

A recommended Senior Wellness Visit may include:

  • Wellness Exam
  • Vaccinations
  • Fecal check
  • Bloodwork (Complete Blood Count, Chemistry, and Thyroid hormone level)- this screens major organ systems like the liver and kidneys for disease.
  • Blood Pressure/EKG- just like humans, animals can become hyper or hypotensive as they age.  Medication is sometimes warranted.
  • Intra-ocular pressure- a small devise called a Tonopen is used to check for glaucoma in the eyes.
  • Urinalysis- a urine sample can be the first indicator of kidney disease and urinary tract disease such as infections or stones.
  • Chest Radiograph (1 view)- an x-ray can evaluate the lungs and heart for early disease.
