Canine Laboratory Tests For Veterinary Care

WHY IS LABWORK IMPORTANT?

In many cases, the physical exam and knowing the symptoms that have been observed are not enough for us to make a precise diagnosis. Our dogs cannot speak and tell us how they are feeling, labwork can fill in the blanks and uncover issues that are on-going and undetectable otherwise. Many times we are able to detect illness before your dog shows any symptoms.

Cats typically take care of daily grooming by themselves. If you’ve ever seen a cat lying in the sun grooming itself, it can be quite calming to observe the meticulous routine.

Cats are also able to maintain a healthy-looking coat by daily grooming and distributing natural oils to keep their coats clean and shiny.

Dental Care For Cats - What Every Cat Owner Should Know

Dental disease is a reality for most cats. By age four, many cats have significant gingivitis and many also have periodontal disease. It is a slow progressing but serious disease that causes pain and affects the overall health and wellbeing. Cats will not show signs of oral discomfort. Because the pain associated with dental problems comes on slowly over time, they simply learn to live with it. That is why it is important that all cats see a veterinarian annually to assess their oral health.

Cats age significantly faster than humans and therefore it is imperative for cat owners to stay on top of wellness exams in order to catch any potential health problems before they begin.

Therefore, regular cat wellness exams are the cornerstone of preventive veterinary medicine.
