February 25th, 2013 - Now Offering Pet Wellness Reports®!

For cats between the ages of 2 – 7 years old, we're now offering the Pet Wellness Report® during your pet's regular exam to provide a more complete picture of your pet's health.

The results of detailed laboratory work and a comprehensive Pet Health Questionnaire are combined to form an individualized Pet Wellness Report®. This can help you better understand your pet's health and enable you to work with your veterinarian to provide the best possible care.

Laboratory Testing

Laboratory tests provide your veterinarian information to help evaluate your pet's organ function, identify the nutrition your pet needs to stay well, better understand your pet's health risks, and detect some common diseases in time to make a difference.

The Pet Health Questionnaire

The questionnaire takes advantage of your close relationship with your pet to help predict or identify potential issues early. The questionnaire asks questions that provide background on your pet in the following areas:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Weight Management
  • Oral and Dental Health
  • Nutrition
  • Heartworm and heart health
  • Kidney and other organ health
  • General Safety
  • Risk from diseases, some of which may be preventalbe by vaccination

The questionnaire also calculates your pet's approximate age in 'human' years. It gives you a unique chance to share detailed information about your pet with your veterinarian that you may not have the opportunity (or always remember) to discuss during a regular exam.

The Pet Wellness Report®

Your pet's individualized report includes the results of the online health and lifestyle questionnaire and also your pet's laboratory values – all in easy-to-understand language.

It provides:

  • Health information and recommendations tailored to your pet's needs
  • An evalutation of your pet's risk level for certain serious medical conditions
  • The opporunity for you and your veterinarian to discuss the best options for your pet so you can take action
