Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that plays a role in DNA synthesis.  As an essential vitamin it’s only obtained through the pet’s diet.  Low B12 values can indicate diet deficiency or the presence of disease that inhibits absorption. VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines to get patients to normal.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a marker of degenerative joint disease (DJD).  Joint Disease is typically viewed as an old-animal disease, however the degeneration of joints can start early in life and not present clinically until later.  Using HA to detect when that degeneration begins, allows earlier intervention and more options to slow or stop the progression of joint disease.   Learn more.
