How often should cats and dogs get their bloodwork done?
Veterinarians suggest that pets should have their bloodwork done during their annual health checkups. This means they should have their bloodwork done at least once each year. However, if there are signs of concern such as excessive vomiting, diarrhea, or fever, your veterinarian might also suggest getting bloodwork done in such cases. Bloodwork is also done before administering anesthesia prior to surgeries.
When can puppies and kittens get their bloodwork done?
Puppies and kittens typically have their first bloodwork done when they visit the vet for their annual health checkup. This bloodwork helps the vet determine your pet’s baseline health and helps monitor their health and wellness.
