Pets can’t say how they’re feeling—it’s usually how they look or act that tells you something is wrong. Cats are especially good at hiding illness and symptoms. You play a key role in helping your pet combat illness and stay as healthy as possible - Shores Animal Hospital is your partner in your pet's health.
Annual (and bi-annual as the pet ages) exams and blood tests are the best ways to ensure that your pet lives a long, healthy and happy life.
Diabetes, kidney, heart and liver disease may not show symptoms at onset. Identifying possible diseases and complications early allows us a better chance to develop a treatment plan for your pet.
Our Early Disease Detection Blood Tests can provide information about your pet’s liver, kidneys and pancreas, blood sugar levels, white blood cell count, red blood cell count and platelet count and can identify infection, inflammation and anemia.
Why do we recommend annual preventative care blood tests on healthy pets?
Every pet is unique - so annual testing allows us to determine what a normal baseline result is for your pet. Trending these results over time allows us to diagnose problems early as we can notice changes in your pet earlier. More advanced disease is associated with more complications and it can make treatment harder and more expensive.
Depending on your pet’s age, we offer different blood & lab test packages to allow us to best help you help your pet live a longer, healthier, happier life.
