Blood Testing
Keeping your beloved pets in good health is important, and that is why blood tests need to be done from time to time. It can be required both for canine and feline companions at your home, but even pet birds require blood check-ups.

Why Blood Testing/Pathology Tests Are Necessary?

Vets recommend various types of blood tests for pets to detect different types of ailments and chronic medical conditions. They may also want such tests to be carried out to fathom the potential health risks faced by your pet.

By carrying out blood tests, precise detection of any disorder or infection in the pet is possible. The blood tests show if the pet is coping with any nutritional deficit as well. Some ailments specific to the pets can be hard to detect without blood tests as the pets show no physical symptoms. In dogs, such tests are necessary to detect Lyme disease and heartworm, while Blood tests for cats help detect the onset of serious ailments like leptospirosis and reveal signs of FIV.

How Blood Tests Help Anticipate Health Issues?

A healthy-looking pet may also cope with a disorder, but it may be hard to spot it externally. Only a blood test can detect signs of such ailments in pets. The reports indicate the deficit of key nutrients, and these can indicate the onset of certain ailments pertaining to cardiac health or bone condition in pets.

Why Do Even The Best Of Pet Parents Miss Signs About
Their Pets’ Health And Tests Are Needed?

The pets cannot communicate their health problems like humans, naturally. Some pet disorders have minimal or no visible signs. While some ailments affect the fur, teeth or movements, there are disorders that affect the inner organs and immunity without showing external symptoms. Without carrying out pathology tests, you will not be able to know that the pet has developed a condition in some cases.
