Why do our pets need scheduled health screening?
Since our beloved pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel sick or have any other indicators of internal illness. We recommend an annual exam for every pet and biannual exams for geriatric pets or pets with chronic diseases and/or meds. We also recommend some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent. These tests are optional but recommended and will be discussed at the time of your pet's exam.
Pets will often actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
Use the age chart below to find your pet's age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.
