Senior Wellness Recommendations from Your Veterinarian


The Veterinarians at Gilbertsville Veterinary Hospital recommend that they examine your senior pet every 6 months.  During your pet’s examination the doctor’s will perform a nose to tail examination looking at your pets eye and mouth and listening to their heart and lungs.  Click on the image to read the full details of your pets physical examination.



Flea & Tick Prevention is an important part of keeping your pet healthy.  We can bring fleas into our pets environment even if they do not go outside.  Products like Frontline Plus and Revolution help keep your cat healthy and happy.  Click here to read more about prevention and rebates.

Laboratory Profiles

Your senior pet may look healthy on the outside but having your pets bloodworm performed on a regular basis helps the doctors detect and protect your pet from common diseases that affect older pets.  the senior profile includes a CBC, Chemistry, Thyroid, Urinalysis, and Fecal Examination.  Click the image for more details on the profile.


The doctor’s recommend that your pet stays current on their Rabies every year and Feline Distemper every 3 years.  If your cat goes outside the doctor’s recommend that you keep your cat current on their feline leukemia vaccine.
