Pets like people, are living longer and longer. Advances in medicine and how we care for our animal companions are the biggest contribiting factors.
Routine screening at different life stages alert us to states of health, temporary illness and chronic disease. Baseline bloodwork often done before your cat or dog is spayed or neutered help us catch conditions we might have otherwise missed. It also servers as a baseline normal for comparison should your pet experience an emergency.
Senior pet (over 8 years old) labwork coupled with X-rays lets us catch images we may have otherwise missed: early kidney disease, diabetes, liver problems, anemia along with bladder stones, heart enlargement, pancreatic inflammation, splenic masses and more.
