Why do our pets need surveillance screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color, unwell, or have any other indicators of internal illness. It is advisable to examine them every 6 months as well as run routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
