Four primary health testing classifications are suggested for canines: complete blood count (CBC), biochemistry profile, urinalysis, and thyroid testing. Inside every class, your veterinarian will prompt you on how broad the testing ought to be. Remember, the older your dog is, the more tests they may require.

A comprehensive pet exam is a meeting with the specialist to address any worries or questions you might have. The exam is for a debilitated or a pet with any side effects such as limping, ear, stomach, or dermatology issues. Every pet owner will experience a comprehensive pet exam with their pet at some point.

Most adult pets just have to visit our veterinarian once a year. During this time, our veterinarian might give your pet booster shots and play out a physical exam. Urine tests and blood work are likewise suggested during the yearly test. Our team will determine the best exam schedule for your pet.
