Complete blood count in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Complete blood count in dogs


Avatar f tn I had a complete blood count with differential yesterday that showed normal values for all ranges. Is this sufficient to show no HIV or is that a separate test?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone has had several CBC's and had slightly elevated white blood count? The last 3-4 times in which I've had a complete blood count they notice that it's elevated but not to the point where it becomes a concern ( so the doctor says) but I still find it strange.
Avatar f tn Another blood test was ran yesterday. Her test results indicated normal ALT levels, as well as normal kidney and blood count indicators. However, she had very low glucose level. Normal level, according to her vet, was about 60 units. Hers was 18. What could be the cause of this and are there any natural ways to supplement or aid her? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I am unsure if my clotting factors were assessed, I will be getting the reports from my family physician as soon as the hospital sends them. I will also be sure to make a follow up appt with my urologist.
Avatar n tn I recently adopted a dog from a shelter. He is heartworm positive, was treated for hookworms 2 days ago, and is very, very skinny. The vet said his red blood cell count is 'on the cusp.' I just gave Atticus hookworm treatment two days ago. We cannot begin heartworm treatement for three weeks. Other than limiting his activity, how do I best care for him? He is not eating much and I have to really work with him to get him to eat.
Avatar f tn Is the Ehrlichiosis tick-bite related? Did her treatment for that come to an end, or is she still being treated with Doxycycline? Ehrlichiosis does cause low platelets. It could be any treatment did not "get on top of" the infection. -or hasn't done yet. If her Doxycycline treatment stopped, she may need further antibiotic treatment. If her platelet count is dangerously low, in the vet's opinion, she may need blood transfusion.
Avatar m tn All was well now they have informed me that her blood count has dropped ...and she needs a blood transfusion to live...we have exausted all of funds for medical needs...we are in need of help... For her to survive .... We are accepting donations at the .........
Avatar f tn My dog is a rescue dog 3yrs.- a spaniel type small dog she is overweight - 15kg despite many many long walks and she hardly eats anything - sometimes not for 2 days. she has just had some blood results that show Hormonal problems - the vet has now said she has a "syndrome" that only occurs in dogs aged 7-8 - sl whiloe she reads up on the 'syndrome" I have to wait 4 more days!! ( I am in Rhodes Greece) can anyone shed any light??, is it fatal, or can it be cured?
Avatar n tn Are there any other signs or symptoms present? Chest x-ray, complete blood count and complete medical and physical examination is needed to help with the diagnosis. It would be best to see your doctor to rule out any differentials and to reach a complete diagnosis. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn It seems to me that this should be common protocol for dogs with seizures and, for that matter, all dogs. Had we been properly advised a 6 years ago...even one year ago.....this would have been a fairly routine diagnosis to correct and Sassy would still be here bringing life and joy into our home. Pass that along to anyone who will listen....I sure will.
Avatar n tn So I signed him up for an appointment to meet with the doctor. He got a complete blood workup as well as a catheder tube insertion to check for blockage in the penis. We were told that he would bleed for about a day b/c of it. We later brought him back b/c he had a small pool of blood on the floor and he was shaking uncontrollably. At the hospital, we had discovered that his blood tests had come in already and the results were that his platelets were really low...27.
Avatar f tn I’ll suggest getting a complete blood count as a low platelet count can cause both skin rashes and traces of blood in urine. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn Normally simple blood tests results like hemogram, total cell count, complete blood checkup, blood sugar, electrolytes etc are available the same day. Some times the tests are done and the report not uploaded on the computer due to technical delays. So if you do not get them by tomorrow, yes, definitely follow this up. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn Yeah i know it sounds strange but my dogs got into a dog fight they bit each other and then one of them in my effort to separate them bit me... there was lots of blood human an dogs. Is there any risk for humans to contact viruses such as aids by such senarios???
457438 tn?1302068407 I consulted the Doctor again today because I don’t get complete relief from fever and cough. He advice to do blood and urine test. After test my Platelet count is 2.8 Lakhs and TC is 4400 CELLE/CUMS. He checked the test result and retest after two days. He said that PC and TC level are low. May be Dengue/Viral fever. Can u advice me?
Avatar f tn s level of health, monocytes make up between one and three percent of the total white blood cells in the body. They can be counted as part of a blood test, and changes in their levels can indicate changes in a patient's health. As a general rule, a low monocyte count is a good sign, and a high count indicates that a problem is present. These cells are made in the bone marrow, and they spread through the body in one to three days. They can develop into either dendritic cells or macrophages.
Avatar n tn They can also result from autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, bone marrow disorders such as leukemia, inflammation of the veins, as a side effect of certain medications, viral infections, such as EBV or Dengue and septicemia or infection in blood. A complete blood count, urine examination and a blood culture may be required to reach a diagnosis. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Canine Stroke Recovery Dog's suffer from brain strokes just as we do. However the chances of complete recovery are greater. Find out about canine stroke recovery period and how to look after your dog post attack... Dogs usually suffer from strokes only after they are over 8 years of age, unless there is something drastically wrong with the dog's health. Strokes never do come with a warning and often just happen without any prior signs.
Avatar f tn The number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. The WBC is usually measured as part of the CBC (complete blood count). White blood cells are the infection-fighting cells in the blood. There are different types of white blood cells, including neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes; PMNs), band cells (slightly immature neutrophils), T-type lymphocytes (T cells), B-type lymphocytes (B cells), monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.
223237 tn?1302188391 My husband and I took our shitzu-poodle for a walk this evening and when he did #2, there was blood in it. I plan on calling the vet about it first thing Monday morning, but was wondering if anyone had any ideas. He has been sneaking leftover soft cat food for the previous 2 weeks, and I know that isn't really good for him. Other than that he pretty much sticks to a dry dog food diet.
Avatar n tn A viral infection can present with a decrease in the white blood cell count. The white blood cell count should improve or normalize once the infection is cleared from the body. If the white blood cell count remained low despite of resolution of infection, further examinations will be needed to determine the exact cause.
