Blood Work

Blood work is a valuable diagnostic tool for pets, providing a comprehensive assessment of their overall health. It helps detect diseases in their early stages, enables monitoring of chronic conditions, and guides us in developing appropriate treatment plans to ensure their well-being.

Our Process

We begin with a detailed history-taking and perform a thorough physical examination of the pet. If necessary, the veterinarian may recommend taking a blood sample from the pet. The blood sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Once the results are received, the veterinarian carefully reviews them. Based on the findings of the bloodwork, the veterinarian will make appropriate recommendations or develop a tailored treatment plan to address any health issues or concerns detected through the blood tests. This process ensures that the pet’s health is closely monitored, and necessary actions are taken to maintain or improve their well-being.

Common Reasons Why Your Pet Might Need Blood Work

Blood panels or blood tests, analyzes are used as a diagnostic tool to help assess their overall health and detect any underlying medical conditions. The blood work typically includes various tests that measure different components of the blood, such as:

1. Complete Blood Count (CBC): This test examines the different types of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It helps detect anemia, infections, and certain blood disorders.

2. Blood Chemistry Panel: This panel evaluates the levels of various substances in the blood, such as electrolytes, glucose, liver enzymes, kidney function markers, and proteins. It provides insights into the pet’s organ function, metabolism, and general health.

3. Thyroid Function Tests: These tests measure thyroid hormone levels, which are crucial for evaluating thyroid health and detecting thyroid-related issues.

4. Pancreatic Enzyme Tests: These tests assess the functioning of the pancreas and help diagnose pancreatitis or other pancreatic conditions.

5. Coagulation Profile: This test evaluates the pet’s blood clotting ability and helps diagnose bleeding disorders or monitor pets on certain medications.

6. Hormone Level Testing: This may include tests for cortisol, testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone levels to assess hormonal imbalances or reproductive health.

7. Infectious Disease Testing: Blood work may include tests for specific infectious diseases, such as heartworm, Lyme disease, or feline leukemia virus (FeLV).

Blood work for pets is a valuable diagnostic tool used by The Mobile Vet Company to assess a pet’s overall health, detect diseases at an early stage, monitor chronic conditions, and guide appropriate treatment plans. It provides crucial information that, along with the pet’s history and physical examination, helps our veterinarians make informed decisions regarding your pet’s care and well-being.

I have been using the Mobile Vet Company for approximately six months now. Initially I thought it would be a good idea to use a mobile medical solution because my old lady canine became too frail to subject to traditional vet visits. Sadly it was necessary to make the decision to put her to sleep not too long after that but the care and compassion that the Mobile Vet Company staff showed at such a sad time was so appreciated. Since then, I have obtained a few rescued feline babies and the support and care they have received has been phenomenal. I feel like my pets are in very good hands indeed. Thank you MVC.

Dr. Buchanan and Jesica came out to our home to examine our Rosie for her trip back to the US. They were extremely professional and caring towards our girl. They took so much time to explain the dynamics of the tropical weather and how it can affect our dog. Thank you for making this a seamless experience! We can’t recommend then enough! Thank you!

Unbelievable service for the price. Both the Vet Tech and the Dr were fantastic with our two cats. Our two can be very skittish but they were not a problem for them and they are now doing much better. Can't say enough good things about this service. I highly recommend it. I don't know why anyone would go through the hassles and time to take loved pets to a traditional vet when they can have this service for so little cost.
