You may roll your eyes a little when we ask for a urine sample or to run a blood test on your perfectly healthy pet. Afterall, if it ain’t broke, why fix it, right? …But, at Carriage Hills Animal Hospital we are about more than fixing broken pets. In fact, one of our prime directives is to prevent illness and disease whenever possible.
Wellness testing plays a big role preventative medicine, and is one of the most effective things you can do as a pet owner to keep your four-legged family member happy and healthy.
The Power of Wellness Testing
Why all the fuss about wellness testing? Your pet appears to be doing fine and our physical examination seems to be spot on. Wellness testing, such as blood and urine screenings, are actually windows to some very valuable information, though.
While most families are busily preparing for a new school season, with shopping for school supplies and getting the kids health checkups in order, it is a good time to remember that our furry friends also require consistent pet wellness care. Keeping your pet on schedule for those important vaccines and parasite control is vital to overall health and happiness.
At Carriage Hills Animal Hospital, we’re celebrating National Pet Immunization month by reminding pet parents that “back to school” prep can also include your four-legged kiddos.
