Regular screening can help us find diseases before symptoms are obvious in your pet. If we detect a disease early, we have better success in treating the disease or may be able to slow the time until symptoms start to show. Routine blood work can help detect potential problem areas such as:
 

• Kidney disease
• Liver disease
• Diabetes
• Adrenal disease
• Thyroid disease
