Veterinarians rely heavily on diagnostics, as this enables them to accurately pinpoint diseases, monitor the progression of said diseases and response to therapeutic procedures, and to eliminate any concerns of underlying diseases that may be present in a seemingly healthy pet. Diagnostics can tell us a plethora of information about your pet’s health, including: kidney and liver function, glucose/thyroid levels, blood compositions (i.e. RBC’s, number of neutrophils/leukocytes, etc.) and presence of various cancers. With this knowledge, the veterinarian can efficiently determine appropriate treatments that are far more effective and precise.
