Vitamin D Testing

Why should my pet have a test for Vitamin D levels?

Vitamin D impacts many body systems and low levels are associated with increased risk of inflammation and cancer. Adequate D levels improve patients with allergic skin disease, inflammatory bowel disease and slows chronic kidney disease. Testing allows us to select the appropriate dose and over time evaluate our effectiveness.

How often should Vitamin D testing be done?

An initial test is done to determine the current state of your pet’s Vitamin D levels. A follow-up test is done every 8-10 weeks until the target level is reached; thereafter, annual testing is recommended to maintain optimum levels.

When should I start Vitamin D testing?

Vitamin D testing can be started at any age. For chronic disease prevention, we recommend adding a Vitamin D test to wellness panels that are typically started at 5-7 years of age.

Extremely professional. I will only bring my pets here because the care they receive is second to none!
