EARLY DETECTION IS LIFESAVING!

Our HealthCheck parameters reveal early warning signs of various diseases. Find a list of just a few examples our product is able to detect below. We cannot overemphasize the importance of regular checkups to identify the many infections and illnesses that would otherwise stay undetected.

Dogs can’t tell us how they feel and mostly don’t show obvious symptoms until an illness has developed! With PEZZ HealthCheck: You know, before they show!

Kidney disease

Chronic kidney disease is the number 2 killer of dogs in the United States. Signs of serious illness only appear after 75% of the kidneys’ function has already been lost. That is why regular checkups are so important, especially for dogs age 7 or older, but still every dog can be affected. In some cases, your dog may show warning signs of kidney disease, but our parameters (e.g. protein) will detect early hints. So you are always on the safe side. Kidneys are very important as they remove waste substances from the blood, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Any condition which damages the kidneys is referred to a kidney or renal disease.

Diabetes

Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to devastating effects on the dog’s body. Diabetes mellitus is a disease caused by either a lack of the hormone insulin or an inadequate response to insulin and is frequently diagnosed in dogs five years of age or older. However, autoimmune disease, genetics, sex, obesity, certain medications can play a major role in the development of the disease. The parameters glucose and ketone react on a change in the insulin balance. For the diabetic dog, one reality exists: The disease cannot be normalized without treatment.

Early detection with regular checkups is one way to safe your furry friend’s life.
