Why do our pets need surveillance screening?

Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every yearly sometimes even earlier depending if there is a serious health concern going on, as well as run some 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.


We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives such as Geriatric lab work, urine screening, thyroid testing, fecal testing, etc.
