PREVENTIVE CARE

PREVENTION WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST MEDICINE

A patient's health is not complete without comprehensive testing.

  • Annual checkups can overlook diseases that are subtle or subclinical. A minimum database can diagnose earlier and enable timely management of common diseases, such as diabetes, kidney disease and parasitism.
  • Every animal is unique, so it is important to know what normal is for each patient.
  • Trending results allows earlier diagnosis and intervention. Earlier detection and treatment leads to better outcomes, improved quality of life and lower treatment costs.

Physical examination alone can fail to detect illnesses.

To learn more about preventive care, contact your Veterinary Diagnostic Consultant.

 

What tests are part of a minimum database?

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Biochemistry (ALT, ALP, albumin, bilirubin, BUN, calcium, creatinine, glucose, SDMA, total protein) and electrolytes (Na+, K+, CL-)
  • Urinalysis with sediment
  • Fecal tests
  • Heartworm and Tick-borne disease screening (in at-risk areas)
  • FeLV and FIV tests (feline only)

Additional baseline tests depending on patient’s signalment, history and physical exam:

  • Thyroid tests
  • Cardiac tests (eg. Cardiopet proBNP or SNAP Feline proBNP)
  • Pancreatic tests (eg. Spec cPL/fPL or SNAP cPL/fPL)
  • Fructosamine
