We offer full blood work, fecal and urinalysis panels through our laboratory Antech Diagnostics. These panels allow us to diagnosis potential diseases before becoming serious issues.
Fact: Our pets age 7x faster with each year. By the time they reach the age of 7 they are almost 50 in human years. Experts recommend starting annual basic wellness panels around age 7 for both cats and dogs.
Listed are just a few panels we offer
Bloodwork Panel- this panel covers a complete chemistry from a simple blood draw. It includes results from liver, kidney, electrolytes, muscle and bone, and CBC (Complete Blood Count which includes your red and white blood cells as well as a variety of other important cells needed for healthy function). *Heartworm test and Urinalysis included*
Urinalysis- Assesses the concentrating ability of the kidneys, protein loss from the kidneys and detection of urinary tract infections.
Intestinal Parasite Screening- collection of a fecal sample which tests for intestinal parasites such as roundworms, whipworms and hooksworms.
Heartworm Test- This tests for a particular parasite that is transmitted via a mosquito bite. The parasite infects a dogs heart and lungs. If left untreated this disease could be deadly to your pet. If any monthly prevention is missed it is highly recommended to test every 6 months.
FeLV/FIV test- This test is recommended for kittens/adult cats with unknown histories. FeLV and FIV both affect the integrity of the immune system. These diseases are extremely contagious to other cats if they come into contact with a positive carrier. Best prevention is to know if your cat has this disease so that appropriate precautions can be taken.
