Blood Tests for Dogs

Our hospital provides complete in-house blood testing, allowing us to obtain results quickly. Blood testing is used to screen for early disease detection, identify specific illnesses, monitor disease progression and regulate and monitor drug levels.

Why are blood tests for dogs important?

Blood testing is used in healthy dogs as a way to screen for any sign of early disease that may not be obvious. Diagnostic testing is done to identify specific illnesses and diseases. Therapeutic blood monitoring is helpful to regulate drug levels and evaluate disease progression over time.

How do I understand the blood test results?

Our Veterinarians will interpret and review blood results with you and determine what further actions may be required for your pet’s care and/or diagnosis.
