Blood tests can show us important information to help diagnose disease or plan the best treatment for your pet.

At Peninsula Vet Care, we are able to offer both internal and external pathology services. Our vets and external specialist pathologists work together to achieve a diagnosis, and tailor the best treatment plan for your pet.

We will often take samples and use microscopes to check what is causing an ear infection, further examine lumps, look at blood smears and assess itchy or inflamed skin. Sedation is at times needed, however, is infrequently required.

Blood samples may be run in our hospitals for a rapid diagnose with visually accurate results for assessing for signs of blood loss or toxicities, among other reasons. Blood tests can be used for pets of all ages, including senior pets (+7 years old) for early detection of disease. These samples are often assessed with a urine sample, so come prepared!

We also use an external veterinary laboratory for expert pathologist opinions for samples that are more difficult to visually diagnose under a microscope. This will guide us to identify the best antibiotic or treatment plan for your pet.
