Blood Tests for Dogs

Blood tests are a very easy way to get excellent information on your pet’s inner workings. We have the ability to do some blood tests in the clinic but can also send out samples to our referral lab for more complex tests. For sick pets, blood tests help us form a treatment plan to try and help your pet recover as well as aiding in monitoring their progress during treatment.

Why are blood tests for dogs important?


Blood tests can detect disease before it becomes visibly apparent in your pet. Wellness testing in this manner is recommended for senior pets at their annual visit but can be done at any time. Early detection of disease can save your pet’s life and help us make treatment decisions in the best interest of you and your pet.

How do I understand the blood test results?


When your pet’s blood tests are returned, your veterinarian will talk with you and explain what is normal or abnormal. During this conversation, we will explain what these results mean and review your options in moving forward with a plan for your pet. We are always happy to provide additional written information for you to review further and ask us questions are your discretion.
