Bones, Muscles and Joints 

Keep your pet moving and grooving this spring
Schedule their yearly checkup today!

Musculoskeletal diseases (conditions that involve bones, muscles and joints) can affect pets of all ages.

They can have aches and pains like we do. But sometimes these
diseases are hard to spot. Think about your furry friend for a moment…
Have they stopped jumping on you when they greet you at the door?
Have they stopped perching on the window sill?
Is your pet acting “old?”
These changes in activity may be due to weather, age or good training. However, to
guarantee your pet is at their best, we have to rule out they don’t have a hidden
musculoskeletal problem. Infections, hormonal imbalances, nutrition, blood disorders
and arthritis can all affect your pets activity—the way they play, move, eat and cuddle!
The good news is we have ways to prevent, cure or manage these conditions, so your
pet can continue to have a good quality of life. We are committed to the wellbeing of
your pet for their lifetime. The best way to do this is to book your pet’s yearly checkup
today. Make an appointment and together, we’ll keep your pet’s bones, muscles and
joints (and the rest of your furry friend) in good working order!
