Why Blood Work is Important
Timuquana Animal Hospital’s goal is to keep your pets happy and health. Annual blood work is recommended to monitor your pet’s overall health. This will give us a baseline that we can use to observe potentially changes in their health. We can discover diseases in their preliminary stages and begin treatment or slow its progression. If you pet is already showing symptoms, blood work will diagnose what is causing the symptoms. Blood work also helps determine the best treatment plan for our patients.
We offer two different blood work packages along with other additional individual tests; routine and advanced. Routine blood work includes a chemistry, complete blood count, and heartworm test. This is primarily for low risk patients such as young and healthy pets.
Advanced blood work included everything in the routine blood work along with a urinalysis, thyroid level test, pancreatitis test, and fecal test. This is for medium or high-risk patients such as middle aged or symptomatic pets. A feline blood work also includes FIV and feline leukemia test.
Below is a brief explanation of each part of the blood work packages:
