At Southside Animal Hospital we want to increase the length and quality of your pets life. Preventative medicine is a powerful tool to achieve that purpose. The two main goals of preventative medicine are disease prevention and early detection of disease.
This is the single most important thing we can do for your pet every year. This is where we can identify many problems from our conversation and examination and prevent worse problems.
Feline Leukemia and FIV testing (Cats Only)
These deadly viruses can be contracted by cats of any age. Testing helps us protect your cat, other cats, and know how to more effectively treat your pet
Blood Pressure Testing(Cats over 9 years old only)
High blood pressure is the most common cardiovascular disease of older cats and can place them at risk for kidney failure, heart failure, and stroke.
Electrocardiogram (Dogs over 9 years old only)
This is an effective screening test for some forms of heart disease that are difficult to determine on physical examination allowing for early intervention.
