The power of combination
Hematology count is generally one of the first assessments done in a fever investigation. This provides good input regarding the activation of the immune system and can also distinguish between a viral and bacterial infection. However, to determine that the activated immune response is actually a result of infection and not, for instance, stress or leukemia, clinical chemistry is a great complimentary technique.
Anemia is a health state closely linked to the RBC indices, where low HCT and HGB are very strong indicators. In order to properly treat the anemia, the underlying cause of the disease needs to be established. To do this, the clinician will expand the testing to include important tools such as physical exams and clinical chemistry.
When the animal has diverse symptoms or just is in need of a- general health checkup, an investigation with minimal effort and maximal return is favorable. The combination of a physical exam, hematology and clinical chemistry will give you a good overview of the overall health status.
Before sedation and operation, in order to take the correct actions and precautions, it is important to assess the status of the patient. For instance, it is good to know the blood count, that the immune system is not compromised, but also to look at electrolyte levels and the biochemistry profile to ensure a successful operation and healthy recovery.
The perfect match
To be committed to animal health means to always look for solutions that offer the best possible care.
