Why do our pets need surveillance screening?

Our pets can't tell us when something doesn't feel right, and often will actively mask any signs of illness until it is advanced. 

 

 More info coming soon.

 

 

Use the age chart below to find your pets age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.

We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives.

These are approximations and may vary by gender, species and breed.
