Bloodwork Services for Pets
Blood testing is a major diagnostic tool that we use at our clinic. It isn’t always possible to perform a physical examination and determine what health issues a pet has. With regular blood testing, we get a clear picture of your pet’s overall health. Both healthy and sick pets benefit from having their blood work done. Bloodwork is a routine service provided at our clinic and is performed by our licensed technicians.
Should my pet fast before bloodwork?
Yes, this is ideal. Fasting before having bloodwork helps provide better blood samples. We ask that your pet avoid food for at least 6 hours before having their bloodwork done. If your pet consumes food before lab work is done, the samples could be skewed and this may result in needing blood to be drawn again.
Why are blood tests important?
Where is blood taken from my pet?
Blood is usually drawn from a vein in the neck or leg. Our team is highly skilled in making the experience comfortable for your pet. They will only feel a pinch, and it is over within seconds.
