Simple Tests - So Many Results
Simple tests. So many results.
Pets can’t say let us know how they feel. Cats especially can hide illness and symptoms from you. You play a key role in helping your pet combat illness and stay as healthy as possible and Valleydale Animal Clinic is your partner in your pet's health.
Diabetes, kidney, heart and liver disease may not show symptoms at onset. Identifying possible diseases and complications early allows us a better chance to develop a treatment plan for your pet.
Valleydale Animal Clinic's Early Disease Detection blood profiles can provide information about your pet’s liver, kidneys and pancreas, blood sugar levels, white blood cell count, red blood cell count and platelet count and can identify infection, inflammation and anemia.
Why do we recommend annual preventative care blood tests on healthy pets?
- Over 1 in 3 cats and 1 in 10 dogs will develop kidney disease
- Over 50% of cats over age 15 are afflicted with kidney disease
- Liver disease is 5th leading cause of death in dogs
- 1 in 200 dogs will develop diabetes in their lifetime
- Overweight cats have a higher chance of developing diabetes
We recommend annual tests on pets 4 & over.
Every pet is unique - so annual testing allows us to determine what a normal baseline result is for your pet. Trending these results over time allows us to diagnose problems early as we can notice changes in your pet earlier. More advanced disease is associated with more complications and it can make treatment harder and more expensive.
Depending on your pet’s age, we offer different blood & lab test packages to allow us to best help you help your pet live a longer, healthier, happier life.
