The Importance of Pet Blood Work

Pet blood work is a valuable diagnostic tool that provides insight into your pet’s overall health. It allows our experienced veterinarians to detect and monitor various health conditions that may not be apparent through physical examinations alone.

When to Consider Pet Blood Work

  • Routine Health Check-ups: Incorporating pet blood work into routine health check-ups is a proactive way to monitor your pet’s health and catch any issues before they become serious.
  • Pre-Surgical Assessment: Before scheduled surgeries or dental procedures, pre-anesthetic blood work ensures that your pet is fit for the procedure and helps minimize potential risks.
  • Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work: Before any surgical or dental procedure, we may recommend pre-anesthetic blood work to ensure that your pet is in optimal health for the procedure and to identify any potential risks.
