Wellness tests are important to help the veterinarians create an overall portfolio of your pet's health. By including blood tests in your pet's routine exams, it is possible to create a wellness "baseline" for future testing to be compared to. This can help to make any potential abnormalities or concerns be more easily detected. Blood tests can be used to check for a number of problems, including organ function, blood sugar monitoring and heartworm disease.
Wellness testing may also include a urinalysis and intestinal parasites tests.
