How Much Does Cat Blood Work Cost?

Cat blood work is done by extracting a certain amount of blood from the cat and performing a number of tests to produce any relevant findings.  This type of test for your cat will help you discover possible diseases and can also guide the veterinarian with a diagnosis to create a treatment plan for the future.  The most common blood tests run will include FeLV/FIV, total thyroid level, serum chemistry and CBC.
