Laboratory

In addition to the physical examination, our veterinarians use blood tests and other laboratory work to better assess your pets health. These blood tests give us a “baseline” of what is normal for your pet.

Blood tests are very valuable in the early detection of diseases in pets. Studies have shown that 25 percent of dogs and cats over the age of 10 years have a treatable disease that is not causing symptoms.

Subtle changes in these tests over time may signal the presence of underlying disease. We recommend that dogs have blood testing done at seven years of age and cats at 8 years of age. Older pets may have these tests routinely repeated.
