Read on to learn more about the pet blood tests we offer at our animal hospital.
Pet Wellness Testing
We offer several types of blood tests at our animal hospital. This testing includes red blood cell count, hemoglobin, and white blood cell count tests.
Red Blood Cell Count
Red blood cell count testing may be our most crucial test. This test can detect severe conditions like polycythemia, dehydration, and anemia.
A hemoglobin test measures how much oxygen there is in your pet's blood. Low hemoglobin levels may indicate your pet has anemia. High levels could indicate heart or lung disease.
White Blood Cell Count
If the veterinarian is concerned that your pet may have an infection, they may do a white blood cell count test. A high level of white blood cells could indicate your pet has an infection. On the other hand, a low white blood cell count could mean your pet has a weakened immune system.
Benefits Offered by Our Nearby Lab
We have our lab at our Winter Garden location. This lab means we can process blood tests and get the results quickly. We will get the results of your pet's blood tests much more rapidly than if we had to send the tests to a third-party lab. Dr. Santiago can start treating your pet earlier if sick.
