Half price blood pressure checks for senior dogs and cats!
At Holly House we are committed to offering outstanding veterinary care for your pets and what we recommend to you is what we do for our own pets. For that reason we are currently offering a half price blood pressure check to all dogs and cats over the age of 7 at the same time as their annual booster. This test, which usually costs £27.00, will be offered at only £13.50.
Once your pet reaches the age of 7 they are classified as “senior”. This means that their needs change, for example they benefit from a senior, rather than an adult, pet food. It also means that certain conditions become more likely. Early diagnosis of these conditions has been shown to increase life expectancy because changes to their diet or lifestyle can be implemented and treatment can be started sooner.
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is seen commonly in senior pets. It can be caused by other conditions such as diabetes or kidney disease, or it can occur on its own. The symptoms are often subtle and it can go undetected for several months or even years. If left untreated it can lead to blindness, kidney failure or even death. We recommend that senior pets have their blood pressure checked once a year.
If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact the practice on 0113 2369030 or via our online booking form to arrange your pet's booster appointment and half price blood pressure check. Offer ends 30th April 2017.
