Blood Work

Our clinic is equipped with a complete in-house laboratory, allowing for on-site testing and rapid results.

What is the purpose of carrying out blood tests on pets?

There can be numerous reasons a veterinary might order blood tests:

Pre-op tests

Before carrying out surgery, the veterinarian will make sure there are no contraindications. Analysis of a blood sample will help us ensure that your pet has no underlying conditions that could pose a risk for the surgery.

Follow-up care for a known condition

Your pet’s blood work can also help us monitor any already diagnosed diseases, helping the veterinarian assess the disease’s progression and adjust your pet’s medication and treatment if needed.

To ensure your pet stays in good health

It’s important to have your pet’s blood work done regularly, even if they’re in perfect health. The results will help your vet quickly detect any diseases and treat them early.
