• I made an appointment for Mika with Dr. DeCampo, just wondering if I need to prep her before her appointment. Mika choked on a bone a week ago, since then she has had cough/respiratory changes, rapid breathing, lethargic behavior. Mika is eating, peeing and pooping fine, showing polydipsia and polyuria though. I would like to check her glucose levels and/or if trauma was done to her airway/esophagus. If I am asking for special blood testing do I need to do a 12 hour fast? If so what other things should I be doing to prepare for her appointment this friday. Thank you

    Hi Crystal,
    I recommend you contact your local Banfield hospital directly regarding your questions and they'll be able to let you know how to prep Mika for her appointment.
