Senior Dog Care 02 | How Lab Work Helps

With age comes change in your dog’s body. Just like us, the years take a toll on the kidneys, liver, pancreas, adrenal and thyroid glands. Increased water consumption and urine elimination may be signs of problems that you are already noticing. Lab work helps us identify what may be causing those symptoms. Early intervention with diet or supplements can solve the problem and reverse blood or urine changes. At the very least, it can slow the condition down to add more years to your dog’s life and improve the quality of health during the senior years.

When Should Your Dog Have Lab Work Done?

At The Well Dog Place, we like to perform lab tests (blood and urine analysis) on all dogs 8 years and older. This is the age we begin to see changes in the blood and urine that signal potential problems. These tests should be repeated yearly to look for problems or monitor the progress of existing problems.
