Blood Tests for Dogs

Blood testing is another diagnostic tool we use at the Morinville Veterinary Clinic. Your pet’s blood can reveal a lot about your pet’s overall health.

Why are blood tests for dogs important?


Blood testing is important for our canine friends, because their blood can tell a lot about their health. This testing helps your veterinarian to detect abnormalities or illness. A normal blood panel provides us with a reference if your pet develops illness later in life. Regular blood screening provides insight and helps us detect disease early.

How do I understand the blood test results?


It is part of your veterinarian’s job to explain any test results to you.
Your veterinarian can describe what is normal and abnormal, and what abnormal results may mean for your pet. Your veterinarian will offer you a copy of the blood work results, be sure to ask questions or for clarification of these results. Your veterinarian team can also give you written information, or trustworthy websites to help you understand the numbers and values.
