We want to help pets live longer and healthier lives.
There are blood and urine screening tests that can be performed to check if your pet is starting to have problems with their organs. Pets are very good at hiding illness and we can’t always tell they are sick very easily.
We can find out things about their health by running these screening tests. Early treatment could prevent things from worsening, make them feel better and help them live longer.
We recommend screening tests be performed every 12 months for SENIOR pets and every 6 months for GERIATRIC pets.
