Blood Tests for Dogs

There are many different types of blood testing that concern the inner workings of your pet’s body. Some testing can be done in-house and some are sent out to the lab. Our veterinarians interpret the results to determine the best care for your pet.

Why is it important to perform blood tests for dogs?

Blood tests are diagnostic tools that describe how organs have been affected over time. They may also be used to diagnose various diseases. We recommend that senior patients have regular bloodwork completed to detect the potential early onset of kidney, liver and other age-related diseases.

How do I interpret my dog’s blood test results?

Our doctors will interpret results as they become available and present them to you. They use the results to guide and provide you with treatment options and prognosis so that you have the information you need to make the right choice for your furry companion.
