Bloodwork Services for Pets

Blood tests or lab tests (as you may hear around the hospital) are a routine part of veterinary care. They provide our team with vital data about your pet’s health. Through screening bloodwork, for example, we are able to identify health problems earlier which allow us to provide the best treatment plan for your loyal companion. These analyses also give us baseline points for comparison, if ever your pet does develop a condition. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your furry family member’s lab tests.

How do I interpret my dog’s/cat’s blood test results?

Your pet’s veterinarian will discuss in detail the analysis of any bloodwork performed and make recommendations for the next steps. If you like, we can also provide you with your own copies of your pet’s lab test results.

How often should dogs/cats/pets get blood tests?

We highly recommend that your pet goes through a routine bloodwork exam at least once per year. All pets, no matter their breed or size need this work done. Bloodwork is even more important for pets who are in their senior years.

How much does a pet blood test cost?

Prices vary and depend on your pet’s specific needs. By calling our team, you will be able to get an accurate statement of our service rates.

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
