Blood Test for Dogs

Blood Tests for Dogs

Routine preventive care helps your veterinarian establish normal baseline laboratory values when your dog is young and healthy. Even subtle changes from baseline values can help identify disease as your dog ages, long before they become apparent to you or your veterinarian.

Preventive care for your senior dog helps to detect disease in its early stages when they are more likely to respond to treatment. It can also help to avoid significant medical expense and risk to your pet’s health.

The goal of every veterinarian is to identify any problems your dog may have early on. Sometimes, early detection can mean better treatment options or possibly slowing the progression of a disease. It is amazing what you can learn about your dog’s health with a few tests conducted on samples of blood and urine.

Fairview Animal Hospital is fortunate to evaluate blood and urine in-house for immediate results on the most common blood profiles for your dog. Also, we can obtain results on a wide variety of tests through our partnership with Idexx laboratories.

How do I interpret my dog’s blood test results?


Our veterinary team at Fairview Animal Hospital will interpret your dog’s blood results and discuss these results with you in detail in person, over the phone or via email.
