Pet Star of the Month February 2020 – Levi Strauss
Meet Levi, the 11 year old Labrador retriever and much loved furry member of the Strauss family.
Dr Johan booked him in for a SENIOR WELLNESS PACKAGE at our Clinic. We advise routine yearly check-ups on all pets but even more so for our senior pets as they age quicker. Levi’s age is equivalent to a 70 year old human.
This package includes:
• General examination
• A yearly vaccination
• Tick and flea treatment
• General anaesthesia + Dental scale and polish
• X-rays of the back, hips, knee’s, elbows and chest
• Basic blood screening
• SDMA kidney function test
• Faecal analysis
• Urine analysis
After taking radiographs, we confirmed that he has mild hip dysplasia, which is common in large breed dogs, but because we did a routine SCREENING on him, we discovered this abnormality before it became an untreatable problem. He is on the correct pain medication and diet to support his joints and ensure that he stays pain free.
It warms our hearts to say that this Golden oldie is in such a good condition. His blood tests were normal and his teeth is now clean again. His vaccinations, deworming and parasite control treatments are all up to date and most importantly, the owners know that they are doing their utmost to give Levi the best possible care.
Levi, you are our GOLDEN OLDIE rock star this month! Strauss family, well done on proving why preventative care is vital.
