Your pet can’t talk and often shows no signs when something is wrong.  So how do you know?  To get a more complete picture of your pet’s health, we ask clients to complete a Health Risk Assessment prior to their appointments.  This allows your veterinarian to focus on what is important for your pet’s health.

The veterinarians also use senior wellness testing, which is a series of tests to get a more complete look at your pets overall health.

  • If detected early, 75% of common diseases in dogs and 63% of common diseases in cats can be prevented by dietary modifications alone over a one-year period.
  • Kidney disease is one for the major causes of illness and death in dogs and cats, buy symptoms do not usually appear until 2/3 of kidney function has been lost.  If caught early, the animal can live with this condition for many years.
  • If a liver problem is detected at early stage of disease and is administered proper treatment, the chance of your pet’s recovery is in your favor.
  • Early detection of diabetes is extremely important because an early therapy regimen can be more effective and easier on the animal.  Detecting and monitoring diabetes early can also prevent damage to other organs.
