Blood Tests for Cats

Why are blood tests important for my cat’s health?


Blood tests in cats provide us with valuable information about their health and wellness especially since they cannot speak for themselves. Blood test changes can give us clues as to which organ system might be affected when they are unwell. Blood tests can also provide peace of mind for owners if they are normal as to whether their pets are healthy on the inside as well as the outside.

How long does it take to get blood test results?


Depending on the test, we will usually have the results back from the lab within 24 hours. Once we receive your pet’s test results, they will be reviewed by one of our doctors, and you will be contacted by phone to discuss the findings.

How should I prepare my cat for their blood tests?


Depending on the blood test you may be asked to fast (not feed) your pet before your appointment. Or if your pet is currently on any medication, you may be asked to book your pet’s test at a specific time around when they would normally get their medication. Together you and your veterinarian will determine the best way to prepare for your pet’s blood test appointment.

How often should blood tests be done?


It is recommended to have blood testing done yearly. However, depending on your pet’s medical condition or needs, it may be recommended more frequently.

Does your clinic perform urinalysis and biopsy?


Yes, we do offer urinalysis and biopsy. Please feel free to contact us during the day, 7 days a week with any question or to book an appointment.
