The Importance of Blood Work for Dogs and Cats
Blood work reveals a lot of information about your pet’s health. We recommend yearly blood and fecal testing so that we can make sure your companion continues to be healthy and free of any infections or parasites. Our team works with trusted referral laboratories for all testing and to obtain comprehensive results that will help us find the best treatment plan for your pet.
Some of the tests we recommend yearly for our patients include:
- Complete blood cell count (CBC)
- Fecal/giardia exam
- Heartworm 4Dx (for dogs)
- Complete or partial urinalysis
- FeLV/FIV (for cats)
- Blood pressure
We Offer Vaccine Titers
If your pet is prone to having allergic reactions to certain vaccines, we can perform vaccine titers instead to measure their antibodies. While vaccinations are important, we want to keep your pet safe and provide care that works best for them.
