Our furry friends unfortunately age much quicker than we do. While we perform comprehensive examinations, we are unable to see what is going on internally. This is where routine annual blood work comes in.
We can catch early signs of medical conditions (such as diabetes, liver or kidney disease) that we would otherwise be unable to identify on exam, often before your pet is ever sick. When caught early many conditions can be managed or cured with a simple diet change or medication.
If the blood work is normal, then we will have a baseline should your pet later become sick.
