This philosophy includes advanced, on-site diagnostics for prevention and accurate evaluation of health issues. Clients throughout the Huntington Beach, CA area find this approach saves money (as well as discomfort for the pet) in the long term.
Importance of diagnostics
Diagnostic testing is critical in developing a clear picture of your pet’s overall health, and in detecting underlying (asymptomatic) conditions and risk factors . . . even when your companion looks perfectly healthy on the outside.
For puppies and kittens, preventive diagnostics includes fecal exam for intestinal parasites, pre-anesthetic bloodwork before a spay or neuter procedure, and heartworm/Lyme/ehrlicia testing.
Older pets should have an annual:
- CBC (complete blood count).
- Chemistry panel to evaluate kidney and liver function and blood sugar levels.
- Fecal flotation test for internal parasites.
- Heartworm test.
- Tick-borne disease testing.
The cost of treating any one of these conditions in an advanced state far exceeds the price tag of proactive testing.
