Why do our pets need surveillance or wellness screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off colour or unwell or have any other subtle indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6-12 months 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 and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.
