Samples - how they help your vet
Laboratory tests are used by vets to help them diagnose disease in sick pets. Increasingly they are also used as part of a routine health check to detect hidden disease before the development of obvious symptoms. This allows your cat to be treated earlier and more effectively. Tests may be used to show whether a cat is carrying infections that could pose a threat to other cats it comes into contact with. A very important use is to test that your cat's kidneys and liver are working properly before a surgical operation.
