We recommend regular screening to be sure pets are as healthy on the inside as they appear to be on the outside. Animals do not always show outward symptoms of infection or disease until a condition has advanced. It is best to identify problems early, when medical or surgical intervention can be most helpful for your pet.
Common screening tests include a 4DX (Heartworm, Lyme, Anaplasmosis, Erhlichia) test, fecal analysis, complete blood count, full blood chemistry profile, and urinalysis. These screening tests aim to detect disease and help keep your animal healthy.
We also perform blood and urine tests as part of our pre-anesthetic screening. These tests help determine how well a patient can tolerate anesthesia and what the best anesthetic protocol might be for the patent.
