Pet Blood Testing in Surry Hills NSW

Blood testing is an important tool in helping to assess your pet’s health from the inside. We run blood tests for a variety of reasons, from routine screening, monitoring illness and disease, and diagnosis of conditions.

Vets On Crown have a fully equipped in house lab that can run:

  • Complete blood counts
  • Full biochemistry panels
  • Thyroid levels
  • Electrolyte levels
  • Pancreatitis 
  • Felv/FIV 
  • Heartworm 
  • Leptospirosis (see the following page for fact sheet)

Once we have collected the blood sample we need from your pet, tests can be run immediately, and results can be back within 30 minutes. This allows for rapid diagnosis and treatment of a condition when your pet presents unwell.

We do not only recommend that unwell pets get a blood screen. We also highly recommend that pets get a screen before putting them under general anesthesia. Depending on your pet’s age and health status, we may recommend running a Pre-Surgical profile which is a “mini” blood test that tests the organs that commonly metabolize medications (such as the liver and kidneys) but also checks glucose levels and protein levels to ensure that the body is in good shape to undergo anesthesia.

Once your pets get to a more mature age, we also recommend yearly screening to try and pick up early changes in your pet’s organs that may not be picked up on the year exam. Things such as kidney and liver degeneration are almost impossible to pick up early without blood and/or urine screen.
