What is Pet Blood Work?

Pet blood work involves analyzing a sample of your pet’s blood to assess various aspects of their health, including red and white blood cell counts, organ function, and more. It can help detect diseases and conditions early, leading to better treatment outcomes.

Why is Pet Blood Work Important?

Pet blood work is an essential tool in veterinary medicine. It can help diagnose diseases, monitor ongoing conditions, and assess your pet’s overall health, especially before surgeries or when starting new medications.

Our Pet Blood Work Services Include:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): This evaluation of red and white blood cells and platelets helps diagnose infections, anemia, and other conditions.
  • Blood Chemistry Panel: This panel assesses organ function, including the liver, kidneys, and pancreas, and checks for imbalances in blood sugar and electrolytes.
  • Thyroid Function Tests: Measures thyroid hormone levels to diagnose hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism in dogs and cats.
  • Heartworm and Tick-borne Disease Testing: Screens for heartworm disease and common tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease.
  • Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work: Ensures your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia before surgeries or dental procedures.
  • Six-Month Check: Periodic monitoring when on long-term medications.
  • Monitoring for Chronic Conditions: This helps monitor conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, and liver disease so we can adjust treatment plans as needed.

Benefits of Pet Blood Work:

  • Early detection of diseases and conditions
  • Monitoring of ongoing health issues
  • Better treatment outcomes
  • Peace of mind for pet owners
