Blood Tests


Blood tests are usually thought of as something that are requested by your veterinarian when your pet is sick, however they can also be very useful in providing a bench mark for currently well animals, possibly picking up early signs of disease or allowing a baseline for which later results can be compared against. 

Apart from when your pet is very ill, here are some situations where you should consider blood tests.  You should contact us by telephone or using the contact us form to discuss in further detail these tests and whether your pet would benefit from them.
