Health Screening Tests

Monitoring blood-work frequently is important because it allows us to maintain the proper care for any specific pet. 80% of animals have an undiagnosed illness that can be diagnosed with a diagnostic as simple as blood-work. Once an animal has been diagnosed with an illness we recommend monitoring blood values for the remainder of their life so our veterinarians can maintain the best treatment plan for them.

  • Wellness blood panels
  • Von Willebrand’s Disease Screening
  • Renal Disease Monitoring
  • Liver Disease Monitoring
  • Diabetic Management
  • Cushings Disease Management (ACTH or LDDS testing)
  • Phenobarbital Level Monitoring
  • Thyroid Screening and management

Intestinal Parasite Screening/ Control

By testing a fecal sample once a year you are able to consistently tract what parasites your dog may be at risk for, or who may be infecting your pet. We can screen your pet’s stool at any time, but we recommend testing a stool sample at a minimum of once a year to ensure that you’re pet’s gut health is not being compromised. Some parasites can be transmitted to humans, and the eggs are not visual to the naked eye. We are looking for roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, whipworms, coccidia, and giardia.

Genetic Screening

We offer genetic testing for our patients due to the high number of genetic diseases that can be detected before symptoms may occur. This allows owners to prepare for potential health risks that may be in their pets future. These screenings can also determine which pets are carriers of certain genetic diseases and may pass these genes to future generations if being bred.
