Laboratory Work

Lab work refers to blood, urine, fecal and cytology tests. Most results will usually be received within the same day allowing our veterinarians to provide feedback and treatments for your pet. ​ A complete blood count (CBC) and biochemistry blood panel can be used to diagnose many conditions for example liver and kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid disease, and infection among others. ​Fecal tests are used to test your pet for internal parasites such as tapeworms, roundworms, and hookworms which are all relatively common and can cause illness.

Does my pet need to be fasted?

Typically your pet does not need to be fasted for blood work. In the cases where fasting is required, your veterinarian will inform you. For diabetic pets coming in for insulin level testing, please only feed the morning meal and medication, do not give any other treats or food afterwards.

What is the cost of bloodwork?

The cost of bloodwork can vary depending on the specific diagnostic tests ordered by the veterinarian.
