Drug levels need to be monitored on a regular basis, just as in humans. We need to be sure the medication is still effective as well as ensuring the patient’s safety from potential side effects. Monitoring the drug level in the patient’s bloodstream lets us alter the dosage of the drug to suit each individual’s needs. Exams are just as important to lead us to early detection and evaluation of the pet with the doctor. Depending on the medication, labwork will be performed two to four weeks after the medication is started, and if all is ok every six months afterward.
They have an extremely caring and sensitive staff. The facilities are wonderful and they do their jobs well. I recommend this practice anyone who needs attention for their animal.
