Wellness tests are important to assist the veterinarians in creating an overall portfolio of your pet's health. Our hospital offers and encourages preventive medicine services through early disease detection and wellness programs.
By including blood tests in your pet’s routine exams, it is possible to create a wellness “baseline” against which future testing can be compared. This can help make it easier to detect any potential abnormalities or concerns.
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. Wellness testing is included on all care club packages.
Because pets are living longer, they may experience increased problems with chronic illnesses and cancer. The earlier a problem is diagnosed and a treatment plan started, the better the outcome.
