Blood Test for Dogs

Blood Tests for Dogs

Preventative Care Screening in dogs is an important tool in diagnosing disease and extending the life of your pet. Blood screens can provide the veterinarian indicators for diseases that are not showing up with signs that you might notice at home. By performing regular screening, we can detect changes and address them so that we can keep your dog healthy longer.

Why is it important to perform blood tests for dogs?


Early blood screening is crucial in recognizing health problems before physical symptoms arise. Health concerns such as heart, kidney, liver, adrenal disease and diabetes are detected via a blood test.

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


Your Veterinarian will interpret and explain the blood results and answer any questions that you may have.
