Why do our cats need health screening?
Firstly, our cats can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, cats will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.
Some disease process and medications require follow up lab periodically, no matter the age of your cat.
