First, our pets can't tell us they don't feel well or that the reason they're moving slower isn't just getting older. Your pet needs an exam every 6 months and routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE your pet is showing signs of illness.
Second, pets are good at hiding signs of illness until they are very sick. This stems from survival instincts, and is why often pets will look and act fine when they are in a vet clinic.
Use the age chart below to find your pets age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life. Divide your pet's weight in pounds (lb) by 2.2 to get their weight in kilograms (kg).
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.
