Dogs over 7 years of age and cats over 10 years of age enter a new stage of life: their senior years. As your pet ages, it is important to be proactive to detect problems and pain before symptoms progress. Symptoms in senior patients can be difficult to recognize as they often occur gradually and may be subtle. We have developed a senior wellness program to help identify health problems sooner.

NEW IMPLANT FOR FERRET ADRENAL DISEASE
Springhurst Animal Hospital now has Suprelorin, a new implant for Ferret Adrenal Disease. Adrenal Disease affects 50% of ferrets. Adrenal Disease causes ferrets to become intensely itchy. The prostate gland in male ferrets enlarges and can cause a blockage of urine. The vulva in females swells just like she is in heat. About a third of the time, the adrenal glands become so abnormal that true cancers develop. A few years ago, treatment required major surgery to remove one or both of the adrenal glands. Now, many veterinarians use an implant with a slow releasing drug. Suprelorin is a new implant that last from 8 to 12 months, much longer than melatonin implants. With Suprelorin, sexual behaviors, aggression, vulva swelling, and itching decreased or disappeared by 14 days. Hair growth was evident by 4 to 6 weeks. This approach may even prevent Adrenal Disease completely. Please call Springhurst Animal Hospital for further information.
