Palmetto Animal Clinic recommends pet owners participate in an early detection program during National Senior Pet Month in September.
Early detection is not one test, series of tests or just one visit. It’s a new way of caring for pets, just like human medicine allows. Medical advancements enable veterinarians to diagnose potential diseases before they become a serious issue, including heartworm, thyroid disease and intestinal parasites. By following a simple program, many diseases can be caught early depending on the age of the pet.
If detected early, 75 percent of common diseases in dogs and 63 percent of common diseases in cats can be prevented by dietary modifications over a one-year period. Kidney disease is one of the major causes of illness and death in dogs and cats, but symptoms do not usually appear until 2/3 of kidney function has been lost. If caught early, the animal can live with this condition for many years.
Early detection of diabetes is extremely important because an early therapy regimen can be more effective and easier on the animal. Detecting and monitoring diabetes early can also prevent damage to other organs.
