Why Do Our Pets Need Routine Screenings?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, so they can't tell us if they are feeling unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We recommend to have them examined them every 6 months, as well as run routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
Use the age chart below to find your pets age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives. We want the best for your pet!
