Senior Dog Care

As your beloved friend gets older, preventative care is the best way to keep on top of changes in your dog’s health.

When is a dog considered a senior pet?

Generally, dogs that are 7 years of age and older are considered senior. However, this varies with size and breed.

How should I care for my senior dog? (example: schedule regular check-ups, exercise, special diet, etc.)

In addition to preventative care, we can monitor any changes with annual exams and bloodwork. We recommend scheduling an appointment with our team to chat about your senior pet’s specific needs as they grow into their golden years.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
