Annual wellness testing is being offered by the Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital to help detect and identify conditions and diseases before it's too late.
The Pet Preventative Annual Wellness Screening (Pet-PAWS) program aims to keep your pet healthy by preventing diseases and recommending treatments.
Because no pet is the same, the hospital said, screening tests provide valuable information on what’s “normal” and allows your doctor to quickly evaluate changes in his or her biology.
Among the tests:
Organ function: Measures kidney and liver function, blood sugar, electrolytes, blood protein, and both red and white blood cell counts (indicators of infection and anemia);
Urine: To screen for kidney health;
Blood: For organ health, including liver and kidney function;
Thyroid gland function: To detect disease.
The hospital library also examines stool specimens for intestinal parasites and blood for heartworm disease, a mosquito borne heart infection, and three of the most common tick borne diseases in our area, including Lyme disease.
Pet-PAWS bundles are being offered at 30% discount off regular laboratory pricing.
The discount also applies to additional tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound or more specific blood screening.
Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital has been caring for pets in Bergen County for more than 15 years.
