Even pets that appear completely healthy can have hidden health problems. Left undetected, these problems can develop into serious, even life-threatening, conditions. This is why it is important to discuss running a junior wellness package with your veterinarian. Junior wellness packages include the cost of your pet’s exam, fecal and urine analyses, heartworm test, and blood work.
Fecal analysis detects intestinal parasites, which can cause lethargy, inappetence, and/or GI upset. Urine analysis detects infections, kidney disease, and, in conjunction with blood work, helps indicate other potential ailments. And, blood work provides early detection of infections, anemia, clotting issues, and changes in organ function. Performing a junior wellness package on your furry friend will give you the peace of mind that your pet is healthy and give us a baseline when future blood work is conducted, or will enable our staff to begin management treatments to eliminate, reverse, or slow the progression of our findings. Ultimately, performing early diagnostic testing will ensure that your pet is happy and healthy, whether naturally or with a little help from us here at Heritage.
To get you started, Heritage Veterinary Hospital will be offering 10% off junior wellness packages during the month of June. If you have any questions or are interested in setting up an appointment, please contact us at 314-878-8454.
