Blood tests are a vital tool in the diagnosis of dog and cat diseases. As an essential part of a complete physical exam, our care specialists collect a sample safely and quickly send it off to our advanced diagnostic laboratory for a full analysis.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) $149 – $249
The complete blood count commonly called the CBC is the most common blood test performed on pets and people. It is a simple test that gives information about the different cell types in the blood and can indicate the presence of many forms of disease. This test is essential for pets with fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, pale gums, or loss of appetite. Also if your pet is due for surgery, a CBC can detect some bleeding disorders or other unseen abnormalities.
Heartworm Test $99
Heartworm disease is a serious, progressive disease. The earlier it is detected, the better the chances the pet will recover. There are few, if any, early signs of disease when a dog or cat is infected with heartworms, so detecting their presence with a heartworm test administered by a veterinarian is important. The test requires just a small blood sample from your pet, and it works by detecting the presence of heartworm proteins.
The urinalysis can provide us information not only about the kidneys and bladder, but the liver, pancreas, and other organs. In addition to helping us make a diagnosis, a urinalysis is also helpful in determining a prognosis and response to treatment.
Fecal Exam $49
Fecals enable veterinarians to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms,whipworms, coccidia and giardia. Since intestinal parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are usually hidden from view. Unlike external parasites like fleas and ticks, most intestinal parasites are never seen. The only way to detect the presence of intestinal parasites and identify them is by doing a fecal.
