Regular professional veterinary care is essential to your older pets. Preventative medicine can add an additional 2 to 4 years to your pet’s life. Early detection of disease processes through annual screening tests are essential in helping to manage many of the conditions associated with the aging process. Your pet’s length and quality of life can be directly affected with these simple non-invasive screening tests. A few of the common diseases detected in their later years are kidney disease, diabetes, liver and hormonal diseases as well as heart disease. Ultrasonagraphy, radiography, CBC, blood chemistries and thyroid testing are a few of the diagnostic tools we provide that will aid in early detection of these diseases.
