Wellness Examinations

Today, our furry family members live longer, healthier lives. The care given to your pet can help them achieve a happier, more active life. Just as your physician is recommending regular laboratory screening tests, as well as preventive diagnostic procedures, we recommend the same tests for your pet.

An annual wellness exam can identify subtle, early risk factors of common diseases before clinical symptoms become apparent. Identification of these risk factors allows us to take early preventive measures or initiate early treatment, both of which will minimize the development of potentially life-threatening diseases and provide your pet with a long and healthy life.
As part of our overall wellness exam, we perform tests to check for:

    Diabetes mellitus
    Hypertension
    Liver Disease
    Urinary Tract Problems (infection/bladder stones)
    Kidney Disease
    Anemia
    Cardiovascular Disease
    Infection
    Glaucoma
    Periodontal Disease

We draw blood for a Complete Blood Count (CBC), Biochemistry Profile and Thyroid Profile.
A urine sample will be obtained and submitted to the laboratory as well.
Chest radiographs and an electrocardiogram (ECG) are performed to evaluate heart and lung function.
We also perform an eye exam screen for glaucoma or other ocular disease.
The entire process takes approximately 30 minutes.
Your pet needs to be fasted for at least 12 hours prior to testing, so we generally recommend scheduling the appointment for early morning; however, we can perform the tests at any time during the day. You are more than welcome to wait for your pet while the tests are being performed, or you can “drop off” your pet and we will call you when the tests are complete.
Early detection and rapid, appropriate treatment will prolong the health and happiness of your pet.
Microchip

    Every few seconds, a family pet gets lost. In fact, 1 in 3 pets will go missing sometime in their lives. Most of these pets end up in municipal shelters, animal control facilities and humane societies across the United States. Tragically, most of these pets never make it back home because their owners didn’t microchip them.

What is a microchip?

The Avid Microchip is a passive, integrated transponder that is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm) and is injected into animals with a 12-gauge needle. The microchip is encapsulated in a biocompatible glass capsule coated with Parylene C to prevent tissue irritation and microchip migration. The microchip does not use batteries but is energized by an electromagnetic field produced by a microchip scanner. The microchip is permanent and will last the life of the pet. Each microchip has a unique identification number that is encoded and locked into its integrated circuit. When the pet is registered in a pet recovery database this identification number links the pet to the owner’s contact information.
