► ANIMALS ENRICH OUR LIVES
Did you know that people who own pets live longer, happier, fuller lives? Our pets remind us of what it is to be wild, to be gentle, to be loyal, to trust, to flourih, to slow with age, and yes, eventually die. They connect us to something fundamental in our beings. We are the cartetakers of that connection. For all that our pets teach us, for all the love and joy they bring to our lives, they deserve good care – and they rely on us to give it.
► WHY LIFETIME VETERINARY CARE MATTERS
The average lifespan of dogs in the United States is 7.4 years. The potential lifespan of the average dog in the United States is 15 years. (see age chart below) Comprehensive medical care, good nutrition and proper training allow pets to live up to their potential as long term family members. In other words, the care you give your pet throughout its life will determine how long they will remain a happy, healthy member of your family.
Our goal is to maximize the lifespan and the health of your dog through preventative medical care and nutritional and behavorial counseling. We are advocates for your pet, and our job is to advise you as to the best care options available for you and your pet. Working together as a team we hope to help our patients and their families spend many happy years together.
