Of course, we cannot stop time for your pets to keep them from aging, but we can help them feel young longer. The Lynch Creek Animal Clinic “Forever Young Program” is individualized for each animal and the fees are also based on each pets needs.
Annual blood work including a complete blood count (CBC) and comprehensive chemistry are generally recommended in aged dogs to pick up on subtle disease processed before they become apparent. Therefore, some testing is necessary, but we also include drugless therapies such as Laser Treatments and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM). For example, it has been shown that the damage caused by conditions such as Hip Dysplasia can be significantly reduced with these methods and can be instituted as young as four months old. Heart, kidney and other organ damage can be reduced also. We often employ the drugless therapy combined with conventional medications.
We also stress practices such as good nutrition, weight control, exercise, dental care, proper vaccinations and parasite control.
