Why is Early Detection Important?
Lab work can reveal health problems that are present but not showing clinical signs. Detecting disease processes early means that we can do more with less medical treatment!
If your pet’s lab work falls within normal limits, we can use this information as a baseline of health for future reference and detect potential illnesses much sooner. Additionally, if your pet has been taking medications long term, these medications can alter their organ function. Monitoring the effects of these medications is key to reducing risks and complications.
What Does Lab Work Show?
Chemistry: The Chemistry panel tests for diseases of the liver, kidneys, and pancreas, and reveals total proteins and blood electrolytes.
CBC (Complete Blood Count): CBC measures and quantifies the different portions of the blood including the white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, and hemoglobin. Abnormal cell levels may indicate infections, potential cancers, and other illnesses.
SDMA (Symmetric Dimethylarginine): SDMA evaluates kidney function and can detect early signs of kidney disease when kidney damage is at just 25%. Other kidney tests can only detect disease after 50-75% damage.
