EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES!

Your pet can’t talk and often shows no signs when something is wrong.  So how do you know?  Early detection is the way to start!

Early detection is not one test, a series of tests or just one 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 doctor 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 pets like never before!

By following our simple program, many diseases can be caught early depending on the age of your pet.  Catching a disease early can make all the difference, adding years to your pet’s life.

Did you know?

  • 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 of the major causes of illness and death in dogs and cats, but 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 an early stage of the 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.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ANNUAL BLOOD TESTING

  • Establish and verify your pet’s normal blood values
  • Detect the onset of disease  before physical symptoms occur
  • Make sure your pet’s internal organ systems are healthy
