By nature, animals are designed to disguise their pain and potential illnesses. Keeping this in mind it is essential to regularly examine and gather baseline blood values to allow us to monitor your pet.
Early Detection Panel is a physical exam of the inside of the body. It is performed for pet’s ages 1-7 years old as part of their annual exam. EDP is a package of tests composed of a Blood Chemistry Panel, a Complete Blood Count and a Urinalysis. An Early Detection Panel can assist in diagnosing underlying health conditions before your pet is displaying symptoms such as diabetes, kidney or liver disease. If these diseases are caught early we can begin to manage environmental and dietary changes and/or begin medications earlier providing your pet with the best quality of life possible.
