Did you know?
- Annual exams for your pet are about the equivalent of one exam every seven years for humans. Bi-annual exams are recommended for all senior pets. Your pet is considered a "senior" between 6-8 years of age.
- Although a lot can be learned from a thorough physical exam, there are some signs of disease that can only be detected with further testing. This doesn't just apply to sick pets; it's important to understand what's going on inside with pets that appear healthy, too. Wellness testing can also drastically reduce the cost of treatment and speed up recovery, while helping prolong your pet’s life.
- Looks can be deceiving. 10% of pets that appear healthy to owners and veterinarians during annual checkups are found to have hidden diseases.1
- Many diseases show few, if any, signs during the initial stages of infection. When signs do become visible, often it is because infection has become serious.
- Just like with people, your cat’s or dog’s health will change as it ages and/or gains weight. And because pets age faster than people, major health changes can happen fast.
- Finally, even if your pets' tests come back normal, we have now established what is known as a "baseline". This can be a critical reference point should your pet become ill or have wellness testing again at a later age. Changes in values within normal ranges, can be early indicators of potential health issues. Early detection is the number one factor in getting positive outcomes from illness!
