Our goal at Lakeside Animal Hospital is to detect and treat problems and diseases at their earliest point rather than waiting for them to progress to a more severe or irreversible stage. To accomplish this, we recommend regular blood screening be performed on your pet even if your pet shows no OBVIOUS signs of disease or discomfort and appear otherwise "healthy." Health problems that your pet may be suffering from may be evident through very subtle signs or no symptoms at all until a critical or life-threatening level of disease has been reached. Maintenance blood panels performed on your pet through various stages of his/her life, not only provide us with an invaluable diagnostic tool, but the information collected results in a more thorough and accurate health exam.
