Common Veterinary Blood Tests & What They Mean

When our Durham veterinarians begin to run blood work on your pet, it can be confusing to understand all of the terms. Here are some common types of blood tests we run on cats and dogs at Colony Park Animal Hospital:
  • CBC. A complete blood count (CBC) examines the cell part of the blood and determines the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, the hemoglobin level and the hematocrit in your pet. This test should be done at every annual examination.
  • Chemistry panel. This tests kidney function, liver function and electrolyte levels.
Through an extensive blood work panel, we can help your pet leave our veterinary clinic feeling healthy and on the road to recovery.
