2. Do puppies and older dogs need special testing programs compared to adult dogs? What are the reasons? >

There are special tests that can be done on puppies such as antibodies to infectious diseases, blood tests, calcium ionization, and x-rays of bone structure. The blood test can be done to see if the animal is anemic and how well the blood clotting function is. In particular, puppies that are prone to patellar dislocation, such as Poodles and Bichons, should be identified as soon as possible, and attention should be paid to related matters in daily life according to the doctor’s recommendations.

Older dogs should pay special attention to the level of metabolic function of the liver, kidneys, and other internal organs, usually in response to hematological and imaging tests. The hematological tests include routine blood tests and blood biochemical tests, especially biochemical tests, which can reflect the level of internal metabolic function to some extent. Imaging tests include heart and lung x-rays to see if the heart is healthy in size, shape and structure, and B liver and kidney structures to see if the liver and kidney structures are normal, which can identify physical problems in the animal as soon as possible while preventing them as soon as possible.

3. What do owners need to do at home to prepare their dogs before taking them to the hospital?

Owners do not need to make special preparations before taking their dog to the hospital for examination, but if the animal needs anesthesia, the animal needs to be fasted for 8 hours and water fasted for more than 2 hours. If you want to do a fecal or urine test that cannot be slipped, go to the hospital in the morning and the doctor goes out or the owner brings fresh, clean urine and feces to the hospital within 2 hours. If you need to do an endocrine test, you need to communicate with your doctor in advance if you have been on medication recently. A complete physical exam takes a long time. If the owner decides to help the animal with the physical exam, it is best to call the doctor ahead of time so he or she can schedule it.


7. What is the difference between the annual physical exams for cats, except for dogs, and what is the process? >

Most are the same as dogs.

Most are the same as dogs, but most cats are timid, so it is best for the owner to discuss the time with the doctor first and have the checkup at a quiet time.

8. Your hospital also offers physical exams for other pets such as rabbits, pet mink, lizards, etc..

Yatai can also do biochemical tests for rabbits

9. As an assured hospital with good medical skills and reputation in the industry, how do you feel about some shady hospitals in the industry deliberately delaying treatment and inflating treatment prices? In your opinion, what qualities should a up to standard pet hospital have? As a member of the industry, what do you think parents should do to avoid being fooled by shady hospitals and how can they quickly differentiate without delaying the golden hour of pet treatment?

We have always believed that only by sincerely considering cases can we gain the trust of the owners, and only with the trust of the owners can we have a long-term stable cooperation. A standard hospital needs good facilities, moreover, it needs doctors with medical ethics and caring staffs who take the case as the first priority. I also hope that the owner will not think of cost saving or simple things when choosing a hospital. You know, we are directly dealing with the lives of the people who accompany our pets.
