Diagnostic testing of the blood is important because it is the most sensitive and accurate method of early detection of sub-clinical disease in your pet. This is the very same reason your doctor tests your blood when doing yearly physicals. By detecting disease states at an early stage, we can often intervene by using special diets and medications to slow or halt disease progression. For these reasons, we offer and recommend these tests as part of your regular wellness visits. Further, as your animal ages or as your animal goes to surgery, these tests become even more important. Let us know if you would like to perform these valuable tests on your animals.
