How are canine blood tests done? | German Shorthaired Pointer & Labrador



Zazu and Walle had a Heartworm Blood Test. A veterinarian uses blood tests to check a dog for heartworms. An antigen test detects specific heartworm proteins, called antigens, which are released by adult female heartworms into the dog's bloodstream. Dogs should be tested once a year for heartworm disease. The heartworm antigen test is the preferred method. In order to perform the test, a small amount of blood is drawn from the dog's forearm or neck vein. This test detects the presence of the adult heartworm in the pulmonary arteries and / or the dog's heart.
