What heart disease is to humans, kidney disease is to pets — a leading cause of suffering and death.
In their lifetime, over 1 in 3 cats and 1 in 10 dogs will get kidney disease.3 Worse, they typically show no signs of illness until their kidneys have lost most of their function permanently. As pets age, the likelihood pets will develop kidney disease worsens. In fact, more than half of cats over age 15 are afflicted.1
Now IDEXX SDMA, a breakthrough new test that screens for kidney disease, can detect this devastating disease months to years earlier.3 This gives you and your veterinarian the chance to take action and give your pet the best shot for a healthy, happy, long life — even with kidney disease.3
See what IDEXX's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Roberta Relford, says about IDEXX SDMA here.
As the health advocate for your furry family members, be sure to
ask your veterinarian for the IDEXX SDMA test.
