Pet urine test saves lives!

I am reading more and more articles on the importance or practicing preventative medicine and establishing an early detection health care routine.

The statistics are impressive.  Between 60-75% of chronic illnesses can be reversed with just a change in diet IF caught early enough.  With the increasing costs of veterinary care, this becomes a responsible practice for all pet owners.

When Chloe started spilling glucose in her urine, almost 2 years ago, we switched her to an all canned diet and she has maintained normal values since then.  Her last blood work in July was even better than the previous one 6 months ago!

It’s so much better to prevent an illness or to be able to treat it at an early stage than to have to deal with a serious, life-threatening and costly illness.

White House Comes out Against Dog Breed Bans

Seems like a while since there has been some good news, so it was nice to see that the White House has taken a stand against breed specific legislation.

“We don’t support breed-specific legislation – research shows that bans on certain types of dogs are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources,” it reads. To read more: http://yhoo.it/1f4C8jy

At the very least, this will give people some added leverage in fighting the legislation in their communities.

Early detection for pet health testimonial

It’s so much fun to receive pictures with testimonials.  Here is one that came yesterday from a long-time customer:

Annie and Ricky

“I wanted to thank you for your prompt service!
ThePetCheckup, is very important to me.  As you know, Annie, has a chronic condition and I  have to test her urine at least once a week.  It helps me work closely with my vet in monitoring her.  I am one hour away from my vet., so having ThePetCheckup,  enables me to keep close watch without constantly going to the clinic.
I also use it for maintenance once/month for my older dog, Ricky (15 1/2).
It is a good tool to have for pro-active health care.
Thanks So Much!  A. Roberson, NC
PS: The little Guy is Ricky.  The bigger one is Annie
