A PET OWNER’S GUIDE TO LABORATORY TESTING
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
This tests for anemia, infection, inflammation and the healthiness of blood cells.
Chemistry Tests
These panels survey many of the organ systems of the body to make sure they are working properly.
Thyroid Function Tests
These tests are useful in diagnosing increased (hyper) or decreased (hypo) functions of the thyroid gland.
Urinalysis
This test assesses the health and function of the urinary system. This is especially important in older animals to help with the early detection of kidney disease.
