Blood work is necessary to keep your pet healthy. By performing routine blood work, we are able to monitor any changes to your pet’s kidneys, liver, blood cell counts, and much more. We can learn a lot of information with a little bit of blood.
We also have an external laboratory where we can send more complex testing. We may want to re-evaluate your pet’s results by sending it to the laboratory. We may also want to run thyroid tests, blood clotting factors, cultures, and much more. All of these tests need to be performed at an outside laboratory.
We run cytology tests on many things. We do ear cytologies to figure out if your pets have bacterial or yeast infections. We look at diarrhea under the microscope to see if there is anything abnormal. We also run blood cytologies to look for any cell changes.
