Importance of Getting Blood Work for Your Pet

We know that your pet is just as important as any other member of your family. They provide you with unconditional love, and in return you make sure they have food, water, plenty of pets, and regular visits to the veterinarian. Taking care of your pet’s health is an important part of being a pet parent. That’s why at the Brentwood Animal Hospital in Pensacola, our team provides quality treatment and blood work tests to ensure the safety of your pet.

When to Get Blood Work

Our team provides blood work as part of your pet’s routine health exam. It’s important to get your pet’s blood work to see if they have the proper blood cell count and that their system is functioning properly. Blood work testing allows us to see if your pet’s internal organs are functioning well.

Blood work is recommended if your pet is going to undergo any type of procedure that requires anesthesia. Our veterinarian can use the blood work to check how safe the surgical procedure will be for your pet.

By doing blood work testing yearly your vet will be able to diagnose things earlier and start treatment.

In some cases, a blood test is required to make sure that your pet is negative for the parasite. Once we have the negative test results in, we can begin the treatment for your pet. Another test our vet may request is a CBC, which checks for a variety of illnesses, including anemia. We may also recommend a chemistry panel that checks for metabolic disorders.
