Senior Wellness Workup - Needed ?

1 post in this topic

Ok, here's the deal, I get a letter from my vet, who I respect, that my 9 year old setter should participate in this evaluation, of senior dogs in hopes that any problems that show up now can be addressed to extend hunting life and or life in general. It cost $175 and includeds blood chemistry, thyroid, heartworm, blood count, and urinalysis. There are no problems with the dog now and she has been healthy all her life. Should a do it once, get a base line, and mayby every other year, forget it and monitor her health every year by a her regular vet visit. I'm just wondering if others have found a benefit from this program or is it a scam to fleece money from people who care about their dogs. Believe me, I'd do anything to protect the health of the best dog I've ever had, but as I well know, you can't reverse ageing, and while she's the best hunting dog I,ve ever owned, I feel this could be a "rip-off" preying on the emotions of loving animal owners. For what it is worth, my vet has joined this VCA association that smacks to me of institusional medical care, for a certain percentage profit.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
