Round Hound?  Curvy Kitty?  Click here for tips on peeling off the pounds! (Continued)

Some pets have trouble maintaining a healthy weight due to underlying medical issues.  These include, but are not limited to diabetes, Cushing's disease and hypothyroidism.  It is important to have routine bloodwork done on your pet to check for signs of these and other ailments, especially as our pets get older.  Simple blood tests can help us to detect these problems while they are still easy and inexpensive to treat.  Of your pet has not had wellness bloodwork performed in the past 12 months, feel free to give us a call to make an appointment!
