The most important exams for your pet’s health

Are you a Pet Parent that would love to improve your pet’s wellness?
Then performing these THREE basic exams with the help of your trusted Vet could help you detect any “unwanted guests” or developing diseases at an early stage.
Let’s take a look in greater detail at what these exams are and how they can be beneficial.

Fecal Exams
This routine exam, performed at least once per year by providing your veterinarian a small sample of your pet’s stool for testing. Thanks to this examination, your Veterinarian will be able to detect the presence of parasites and identify them. Your Vet will recommend the most appropriate treatment and actions to limit any potential negative effects on your pet and other members of your family.
From a fecal exam, it is also possible to understand a variety of information regarding your pet’s digestion system. When something is unusual with your pet’s belly, check with your Vet to discuss which steps to take and get in touch with a Farmina Genius Pet Health Coach to find a highly digestible diet for your pet.

Blood Tests
Blood tests allow your Vet to gather insights regarding the health of your dog or cat that can only be discovered from the analysis and sampling of blood. The most common analyses are related to CBC (complete blood count) and blood chemistries. These two analyze chemical components in the blood and allow experts to draw conclusions on the current state of health of your pet.
Usually, blood tests should be performed around once per year. Consult your Local Veterinarian for more information and how to interpret the results.

Urinalysis is a routine test conducted on a yearly or twice per year basis that allows you to thoroughly discover the physical and chemical properties of your pet’s urine. It helps us check the health of their urinary tract, their kidneys, but also to see the functionality of other organs and metabolic functions. The analysis is divided into four distinct aspects:

  1. pH measurements and chemical composition
  2. Appearance assessment – color and turbidity
  3. Measuring the density
  4. Examination of the cells and solid materials through a microscope
Before conducting a urinalysis, always reach out to your Veterinarian to find out the best approach and how to develop an effective action plan after receiving the results.
