Pet Wellness Screenings

The wellness screening is an important step that can help you become more aware of and knowledgeable about key health indicators. In veterinary medicine, we believe these preventative diagnostics are just as important!

Why Is This Important?

Animals are very good at masking illness, and disease may be present even in pets that appear to be healthy. If a disease can be detected before your pet shows signs of illness, steps can often be taken to manage or correct the problem before permanent damage occurs. Wellness screenings are a process of check-ups, blood, and other laboratory tests designed to detect early or hidden diseases in pets that appear to be healthy.

What Does a Wellness Screening Include?

Comprehensive Physical Examination (aka head to toe examination)

  • coat and skin
  • eyes, ears, mouth, and teeth
  • heart, lungs, and abdomen
  • musculoskeletal system

Chemistry and CBC

  • A blood chemistry profile, including electrolytes, provides information about your pet’s liver, kidneys, and pancreas, as well as other functions of the body, such as blood sugar and hydration. A complete blood count can identify infection, inflammation, and anemia.

Infectious Disease Screening

  • Identifies if your pet has been exposed to blood borne parasites such as heartworm and lyme disease.

Fecal Test

  • Checks for parasites, living hidden in your pet’s intestines. Some of these worms are contagious to people as well.

Complete Urinalysis

  • Identifies urinary tract inflammation, infection, and early kidney disease.

Thyroid Function Tests (for senior pets)

  • Early detection of hypothyroidism is only possible with a blood test.

What Does a Wellness Screening Cost?

Take the guesswork out of the equation! Based on your pet and their age, here is what your panel includes and what it will cost.

How Do I schedule a Wellness Screening?

No appointment is necessary! As a walk-in-only clinic, please visit us at your earliest convenience. When coming in for a wellness screening, bring in a fresh fecal sample. The doctor will also want to collect urine when you get here; please don’t let your pet go to the bathroom before you come in!

If you have any questions before your screening, give us a call at (915) 591-1712! We’re happy to help.
