A Family Veterinarian is Important to Your Pet's Health
We belive your veterinarian should be one of the most important aspects in your pet's care. Dr. Patt highly recommends establishing a relationship with a veterinarian the first day you acquire your new pet. She also recommends that all animals should be examined by their veterinarian at least yearly. She also recommends regular lab screening as well. The lab screening will vary depending upon what your pet needs, but typically includes a fecal panel, complete organ panel, and a look at the red and white blood cells. The lab screening is important. Animals are notorious for not showing signs of illness until they are critical and a good way to catch the early stages of any disease is with basic lab screening. Another benefit of lab screening is that it allows us to establish normal, baseline values for your individual pet. This becomes important when your pet is ill; we use the baseline values when analyzing future values. This allows us to determine the longevity of the disease and also helps us to focus on the changes that are of most importance.
