Animals often don’t show signs of pain or illness until their disease is quite advanced. Up to 68% of diseases can be treated with early detection using diagnostics such as bloodwork and urinalysis.
Common diseases that can be detected with blood work and urinalysis include:
- Kidney Disease
- Liver Disease
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Adrenal Disease
- Thyroid Disease
Blood work and urinalysis can also help monitor a pet’s response to treatment. If your pet is having symptoms of disease, it is important to have them examined by a veterinarian. A treatment plan will be made based on the results of a physical exam and diagnostic tests such as blood work and urinalysis.
