Blood Screening

It allows us to evaluate organ function

Even when your pet appears healthy, they could have underlying medical problems that cannot be detected during a physical examination.
Many serious problems start off as relatively minor and easy to treat. When they are not detected promptly, though, they often evolve into life-threatening illnesses. For these reasons, we strongly recommend routine blood screening for pets in Orting and the surrounding areas.

The Importance of Routine Blood Tests

Routine blood tests allow veterinarians to detect illness in its earliest stages and begin treatment right away.

This typically results in a better prognosis for the patient. Screenings also allow us to establish baseline values to determine what represents “good health” for each individual patient.

At Orting Animal Hospital, we rely on routine blood screening to check for several things. A complete blood cell count, or CBC, lets us know how many of each type of cell is in your pet’s blood. If, for example, your pet has a high white blood cell count, it could indicate that they are suffering from chronic inflammation or an infection. A low red blood cell count, on the other hand, suggests anemia.

A blood chemistry profile allows us to evaluate organ function, particularly of the liver and kidneys. This profile also provides us with details regarding your pet’s blood sugar and electrolyte levels and allows us to screen for endocrine disorders like diabetes. Any abnormalities in your pet’s blood tests help us determine what additional tests and treatments are required.
