What can bloodwork detect in pets?
We use bloodwork to detect the following:
- Liver disease
- Kidney problems
When might bloodwork be recommended for my pet?
Bloodwork is often used to diagnose illnesses in pets. When your loyal companion is showing signs of illnesses such as vomiting, loss of appetite, lethargy, increased urination, etc., a blood panel is always recommended. There are other instances where our team may recommend blood tests for your pet:
- Your pet has surgery scheduled. Pre-anesthetic blood testing is necessary to detect underlying health problems that can cause anesthesia complications.
- If your pet is starting a new medication or treatment.
