…and with good reason! Regular blood tests and screenings are essential for helping your pet live the longest, healthiest life possible. These screenings tell us so much about your pet’s health, including how the organs and immune system are functioning. Blood tests also reveal electrolyte levels, which are associated with several health issues.
At RVH, we recommend blood screenings for pets before undergoing anesthetic procedures and at least annual testing for senior pets. Because dogs and cats age faster than people, diseases and illnesses develop faster as well. The sooner we catch any abnormalities, the better the chances of a positive outcome for your pet.
