Blood Tests for Dogs

We offer the most up to date, in-house blood analysis machines. It allows our veterinarians to get results in under an hour and the ability to discuss with our clients the results on the same day. More specific blood testing may be sent to an outside laboratory; these tests may take longer to receive results.

Why is it important to perform blood tests for dogs?

It is important to perform blood tests on your dog to test for early signs of diseases such as liver and kidney disease. Running bloodwork in-house can provide our veterinarians with valuable information about your dog’s health status. If you have any specific questions regarding blood testing for your dog, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

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

One of our skilled veterinarians will discuss any blood work results with you in the clinic or over the phone!
