A PET OWNER’S GUIDE TO LABORATORY TESTING

- Complete Blood Count (CBC): This tests for anemia, infection, inflammation and the healthiness of blood cells.
- Chemistry Tests: These panels survey many of the organ systems of the body to make sure they are working properly.
- Thyroid Function Tests: These tests are useful in diagnosing increased (hyper) or decreased (hypo) functions of the thyroid gland.
- Urinalysis: This test assesses the health and function of the urinary system. This is especially important in older animals to help with the early detection of kidney disease.
