Chemistry Panel Tests
Our blood chemistry panel measures electrolytes, liver and kidney enzymes, and chemical substances such as glucose, calcium and phosphorous. This information helps your veterinarian determine how various organs, such as the kidneys, pancreas, and liver, are currently functioning. Measurements such as blood glucose provide interesting insights as to what and when your animal may have eaten, as their blood glucose levels peak an hour or a few hours after eating their latest meal. The results of these tests help your veterinarian formulate an accurate diagnosis, prescribe proper therapy, and monitor the response to treatment. Further diagnostics or testing may be recommended based on the results of these tests, which VETdispatch can also provide for you.
