Default Laboratory tests

These pages have a lot of what's normal information--what a normal dog temperature is and so on. It shows what's normal for blood chemistry testing and also for hematology and hemostatic tests. Helpful when you've had bloodwork done and are reviewing the results.

Normal values are at the end of the page "How To Read Laboratory Tests"
