Did you know that traditional renal values on lab work do not increase until almost 75% of your pet’s kidney function is lost?
Luckily, with advances in medicine, a new renal biomarker specific to kidney function has been discovered. SDMA (Symmetric dimethylarginine) increases detection of loss of kidney function at 25%.
Until recently, only our reference lab could run this test and results took 2-3 days. We are ecstatic to announce that we are now able to run SDMA in hospital and get results WITHIN MINUTES!
Preventive medicine and early detection are key to ensuring that your pet leads a healthy and long life. We are thrilled to offer the best medicine possible to all of our patients!
