At South Boston Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of senior dogs and cats. We highly encourage wellness testing, an annual group of tests performed specifically to detect signs of early disease in your pet. Wellness testing is particularly important in the geriatric pet since there is a greater chance of underlying disease.
Our wellness testing includes:
- Complete blood count
- Biochemistry profile
- Thyroid hormone testing
Our geriatric care also encourages the use of supplements to help counter the aging process, drug and dietary therapy for cognitive dysfunction and state of the art aquatic therapy for joint pain.
We also do Stem Cell Therapy, a revolutionary new way to treat osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases in pets. We are proud to be the only hospital to offer this state-of-the-art treatment in the Greater Boston Area. To learn more, read our Stem Cell Therapy Q&A brochure.
