The Power of Comprehensive In-House Bloodwork

Elevating Pet Health through Advanced Diagnostic Tools

At Companion Animal Hospital, we are driven by the belief that our pets are not just animals; they are cherished members of our families. That’s why we go above and beyond in our commitment to their well-being, offering comprehensive in-house bloodwork that plays a pivotal role in ensuring their health, whether sick or seemingly healthy.

Bloodwork is a frequently recommended diagnostic tool, crucial in aiding the diagnosis of sick pets and early detection of underlying health issues in apparently healthy ones. We also highly recommend bloodwork for our patients undergoing anesthesia, as it serves as a crucial safety net, minimizing anesthetic risks associated with undetected conditions.

By running bloodwork, we can ensure the safest anesthetic experience for your pet by making any necessary adjustments to their anesthesia, pain management, or fluid administration. In some cases, we may even choose to postpone a procedure if it is in the best interest of your pet’s health.

The benefits of bloodwork are far-reaching, allowing us to identify a spectrum of conditions, including infections, anemia, diabetes, liver and kidney diseases, issues with hydration, electrolyte imbalances, and potential clotting disorders. Many of these conditions may remain hidden and show no noticeable symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage. Early identification through bloodwork empowers us to intervene effectively, providing timely treatment or management to ensure your pet remains happy and healthy for as long as possible.
