How Bionote Can Support Your Senior Pet Care
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recently published “2023 AAHA Senior Care Guidelines for Dogs and Cats,” a comprehensive guide that veterinarians can use to make their practice more senior-friendly. Recommendations include environmental considerations, conversations with owners and regular testing for certain biomarkers.
NT-proBNP and T4, specifically, were recommended to be measured annually, with NT-proBNP also encouraged before an anesthetic event. Bionote offers tests for both these biomarkers as part of the Vcheck line, including the industry-exclusive in-clinic quantitative canine and feline NT-proBNP tests. Adding this resource to your clinic helps you fulfill the AAHA guidelines and gain insight into a patient’s cardiac and thyroid health within minutes.
