Early detection of CKD

"Over their lifetime more than 1 in 3 cats1 2 and 1 in 10 dogs3 could develop chronic kidney disease (CKD)"

SDMA a new kidney test, will help you identify kidney disease months, even years earlier than current diagnostics.

  • With SDMA, over 2 times the number of pets could be diagnosed with kidney disease4
  • Help your clients understand kidney disease and how early detection can impact their pet's outcome.
  • Implement a plan to investigate, manage and monitor kidney disease earlier than ever before.
