Blood Test for Dogs
Bloodwork aids in the diagnosis and staging of diseases. It also helps us to tailor anesthetic protocols specific to your dog and their needs.
Why is it important to perform blood tests for dogs?
At Companion Animal Hospital, we use bloodwork to look for underlying complications with organ function or blood cells. This information is used to determine a treatment plan, tailor anesthetic protocols or postpone surgery. It is important to have a healthy baseline of blood work that can be used as a reference if an illness is to occur later.
How do I interpret my dog’s blood test results?
It’s always best to leave all interpretation of blood work results up to your vet. They can prepare treatment recommendations and/or suggest additional testing.
