Screenings / Age Chart
Why do our pets need surveillance screening?
First, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6-12 months, as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation. Screening bloodwork can detect liver, kidney, or other problems when early intervention is possible.
Use the age chart, at the bottom of the page, to find your pets 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 pet's live longer, healthier lives. Additional testing may be indicated based on your individual pet's health needs.
