In-Clinic Diagnostics


Westside Veterinary Clinic is pleased to offer state-of-the-art blood analyzers in our clinic. Our practice can run a complete blood count (CBC), blood chemistries, and electrolytes to determine what issues your pet may be facing. Our doctors obtain the results of your pet’s blood work in a matter of minutes so an accurate diagnosis can be made quickly, and treatment can begin for your pet.

A CBC gives our doctors a great deal of information about your pet, including their number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelet counts. Blood chemistry analysis helps the doctors at Westside Veterinary Clinic determine organ function. Electrolytes are also important in determining your pet’s overall health.

Bloodwork is recommended prior to any surgery to help minimize anesthetic risk. Bloodwork is also needed when there is a change in your pet’s health or behavior. The doctors at Westside Veterinary Clinic have many years of successful experience diagnosing and caring for pets in the area. Call one of our caring staff members to schedule an appointment.
