Dear Mrs. Smith,

It’s hard to believe Fluffy is already considered a senior pet, but past the age of seven in dogs and cats, it’s true. And we want to make sure we’re bringing her into her golden years at her finest.

Many times when our furry friends begin aging, we start noticing changes in their behavior or activity level. And while it’s easy to blame some of those changes on old age, it’s possible that Fluffy is experiencing some early signs of arthritis. Have you noticed that she’s slowing down on walks or taking the stairs one at a time? Does she have some difficulty rising from a nap or hesitate before jumping up on the couch or bed? All of these signs could point to arthritis and your pet could be in pain. We’d like to help.

Call our office today and speak with a member of our pet care team to schedule an arthritis evaluation exam for Fluffy. Let us help make your older pet feel young again.

Sincerely,

The doctors at XYZ Animal Hospital
