Wellness Screenings

Early Detection Recommendation

Your pet can’t talk, and often, shows no signs when something is wrong. So how do you know? Early Detection through Wellness Screenings is the answer.
Early Detection is not one test, a series of tests, or just one vet visit; it’s a new way of caring for your pet, just like human medicine allows us to care for ourselves. Medical advancements enable your veterinarian to diagnose potential diseases before they become a serious issue (including heartworm, thyroid disease, and intestinal parasites). With today’s medical testing and technology, you can protect your pet like never before – and today is a great time to start!
By following our simple program, many diseases can be caught early, depending on the age of your pet. Today, we even have the technology to predict if your feline friend will develop kidney disease before it even occurs. Catching a disease early can make all the difference; adding years to your pet’s life.

What Does Your Pet's Blood and Urine Tell Us?

LIVER HEALTH

. ALT . AST . ALP . GGT .
. TOTAL BILIRUBIN .
The Liver is a major workhorse in your pet’s body! From storing vitamins, to regulating body temperature, to protein, fat, Et carbohydrate metabolism, the liver is a big organ with an even bigger job in keeping your pet healthy!

KIDNEY HEALTH

. CREATININE . BUN .
. PHOSPHORUS .
The Kidneys are like the filter system for your pet’s body! They work hard to remove waste through urine and keep things clean £r running smoothly! Did you know the kidneys also regulate electrolytes and blood pressure?

ELECTROLYTES

. SODIUM . POTASSIUM .
. CHLORIDE .
Electrolytes are not just found in sports drinks! They are in our bodies and our pets’ bodies, as well! Electrolytes have the important job of regulating the nervous system and the fluids in your pet’s body.

PANCREAS HEALTH

. AMYLASE . LIPASE .
The Pancreas has the amazing job of producing insulin and digestive enzymes. This little guy is also extremely sensitive and lets your pet know when it’s angry! One of the easiest ways to upset the Pancreas (Pancreatitis) is by feeding your pet human foods or fatty foods (like pork, beef, etc.).

HEALTH OF CELLS

. COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT .
The CBC checks your pet for inflammation, infection, anemia, blood clotting time, and so much more! We can tell a lot about your pet’s health through evaluating the size, amount, and type of blood cells present in your pet’s blood sample.

URINALYSIS

. COMPLETES THE PICTURE .
Your pet’s urinalysis tells your vet about your pet’s bladder health, urinary tract function, and kidney function. It can also help to diagnose diseases such as Diabetes and even some types of cancers. Who knew urine told us so much?!
