Our pets are living longer now that we have more preventative care in our treatment plans for your pets. With older age, we are also seeing more aged pets with chronic diseases.

Most Common Ailments Include:

  • Arthritis, inability to get up and down
  • Dental disease, gum disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Cancer

The Message – Catch Disease Early!
We can catch most disease early with proper planning. At Valley Center Veterinary Clinic a thorough examination is performed. The veterinarian will assess these following body systems in your pet: eyes,ears, nose and throat, heart and lung, lymph nodes, abdomen, skeletal, gastrointestinal, reproductive and neurologic systems.

We recommend blood work and urinalysis on every pet over 8 years of age.  These tests can pick up kidney and liver problems, diabetes, electrolyte problems, infections, thyroid disease, anemia and other bone marrow issues.

Chest radiographs should also be taken to assess the heart size and shape.  These images will also help us evaluate the lungs for cancer.

Lastly, we can visualize internal organs with an ultrasound machine. Dr. Clarke performed her annual routine ultrasound on her dog this year and found a nodule on the spleen. As a result, we were able to remove the spleen quickly and determine if the growth was benign or malignant.  It’s important to note that her dog was acting completely NORMAL when she found this tumor.

Our goal in discounting senior packages is to screen for – and catch –  disease early so we can extend their healthy lives.


Please come right over in the event of a pet emergency. Our technicians will assess the nature of the emergency and determine if we can initiate treatment or transfer to a 24 hour medical facility. We can treat the vast majority of emergency cases on-site.

With advance notice, we can schedule convenient appointments at your home. We can take the hastle out of the experience by performing pet examinations on your property. This exceptional service was created to assist the elderly with large breed older dogs, owners with very scared cats.
