Why Senior Pet Wellness Matters:
Aging is a natural part of life for both humans and pets. As our beloved pets grow older, their healthcare needs evolve, making regular check-ups and preventive care more critical than ever. Early detection and intervention can make a world of difference in the health and happiness of your senior companion.
What is a Senior Screen?
Our Senior Screen is a comprehensive bloodwork panel tailored specifically for senior pets aged 7 and above. It provides a comprehensive overview of their health and helps us detect and address potential issues before they become serious concerns. Our Senior Screen includes the following essential components:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC): This assesses your pet’s overall red and white blood cell counts; Abnormalities can be indicative of various conditions, such as anemia, infection, or inflammation.
- Chemistry Panel: This panel assesses your pet’s overall organ function. Any irregularities can signal the presence of diseases like kidney disease, liver dysfunction, or diabetes, among many others.
- Thyroid Hormone Testing: Thyroid hormone levels, measures imbalances that can lead to issues like weight gain, lethargy, and skin problems.
- Urinalysis: A urinalysis helps us evaluate your pet’s kidney function and detect early signs of kidney disease or urinary tract issues.
Cardiopet proBNP Test:
As part of our commitment to your senior pet’s wellness, we also offer the Cardiopet proBNP Test. This test provides a quantitative assessment of canine and feline heart health by measuring the response to stretch and stress. It’s a valuable addition to your pet’s cardiac workup and offers a comprehensive evaluation of their heart health, and a very sensitive indication of early heart disease. To ensure a thorough assessment, we recommend requesting the Cardiopet proBNP Test as part of your cardiac workup when you order routine blood work.
