Diagnostic testing is sometimes necessary to help determine your pet's health status and help diagnose illness. Together with a physical examination and medical history these tests can assist in diagnosis and treatment tailored to your pet's needs.
Pre-anaesthetic blood tests are also recommended for all animals undergoing an anaesthetic. This provides useful information about the kidneys, liver and blood before proceeding with a general anaesthetic, and so minimising risk to your pet.
