How much does it cost in your area to have blood work done on your cat? What tests were included? Was it considered a geriatric panel?
This Friday is my first big pay and I'm getting Latte's complete panel done - she had it done in October, but this time our vet wants to add an additional blood test that tests for liver function (since that is what we're also worried about with Latte's illnesses).
Costs are super high up here because the blood has to be couriered down to Vancouver, etc. (vets up here don't have the lab facilities) and the extra liver blood test is almost equal to the rest of the Geriatric Blood Panel.
I'm also considering having the geriatric panels done on Bali and Boo, just for a baseline. They wouldn't have the additional liver function one, though. Everybody is over 7, which is the 'geriatric' point, apparently.
The 3 cats will cost nearly $900 - just for blood work. Latte's alone is $375.
And people want to know why I work!!
