“Aspen” Franklin, our official hospital cat, has been with us since the beginning! He has spent his days as a gracious blood donor, witty tour guide, and the Director of Feline Relations at MAVH. About a year ago, Aspen was diagnosed with cancer (lymphoma). Through semi yearly exams we were able catch the disease early and in turn add some time to his oh-so busy life!

“Puppies and kittens are cute but older pets have found a special place in our hearts!”

Important facts about senior testing

An aging pet’s organs gradually deteriorate and may lose their ability
to function properly. We use senior testing to promote early detection
and treatment of disease, so we can maintain health and prevent illness
during your Pet’s senior years. Early detection of disease often
gives us more effective and less costly treatment options. In addition,
senior testing also helps establish normal baseline values for your pet,
creating a point of comparison for the future

How old is your pet?

Is my Pet a senior?

If your pet is 7 years old or older, we consider him or her senior. Your pet may
seem healthy well into his/her senior years. However, many problems common to
senior pets (like kidney or heart failure) may not be present symptoms until your
pet becomes seriously ill. “Senior Seven” is our comprehensive senior care
program that helps to identify problems early enough to institute preventive
healthcare measures.
