Why do our pets need surveillance screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off colour or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.Hamilton Road Animal Hospital in London Ontario provide breed specific screening services and also annual wellness screening services for pets.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.We have in house diagnostic lab to test complete blood cell count, biochemistry for liver and kidneys, blood clotting functions, urinalysis and stool test.
