Senior Patient of the Week
George is an 8-year old Boston Terrier. He and his buddy, Humbug, also an 9-year old Boston, have been coming to Olathe Animal Hospital since May 2009. True to Boston Terrier form, they are full of personality and spunk! George’s health issues in the last year or so have included a bout of pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease. At his most recent visit to Olathe Animal Hospital, his owner expressed some new concerns so we performed some additional diagnostics to check for other medical problems. Routine diagnostics, such as blood work (including thyroid test) are so valuable for senior pets because they help us screen for serious problems before they become unmanageable.
