Chem 10 Blood Evaluation Test

Chem 10 Blood Test

$99.95

A comprehensive chemisty profile ideal for canine screening; the Chem 10 allows for a thorough look at the puppies organ function, which helps detect mainly issues with liver and kidney function. This initial bloodwork can offer insight on the health of your puppy at a fraction of the rate your local vet would charge. Detecting issues with organ function is impossible at a normal vet physical. Know your pup’s baseline and start off with maximum peace of mind with the Idexx Chem 10 test.
Included in the Chem 10 Test?
Albumin

Albumin

An albumin blood test measures the amount of albumin in the blood. Albumin is a protein made by your liver. Albumin helps keep fluid in your bloodstream, so it doesn’t leak into other tissues. It also carries substances throughtout the body, including hormones, vitamins and enzymes.
Albumin : Globulin Ratio

Albumin : Globulin Ratio

The albumin/globulin ratio is the amount of albumin in the serum divided by the globulins. The ratio is used to try to idenify causes of change in total serum protein.
Alkaline Phosphatase

Alkaline Phosphatase

The alkalin phosphatase test is used to help detect liver disease or bone disorders. It is often ordered along with other tests, such as gamma-glutamyl transferase and/or as part of a liver panel. In conditions affecting the liver, damaged liver cells release increased amounts of ALP into the blood.
Alanine Transaminase

Alanine Transaminase

ALT, which stands for alanine transaminase, is an enzyme found mostly in the liver. When liver cells are damaged, they release ALT into the bloodstream. An ALT test measures the amount of ALT in the blood.
Blood Urea Nitrogen

Blood Urea Nitrogen

This test determines kidney function. An increased level is called azotemia and can be caused by kidney, liver and heart diesease as well as urethral obstruction, shock or dehydration.
BUN : Creatinine Ratio

BUN : Creatinine Ratio

An increased ratio may be due to a condition that causes a decrease in the flow of blood to the kidneys, such as congestive heart failure or dehydration.
Creatinine

Creatinine

The urine protein:creatinine (UPC) ratio is a simple test that measures how much protein is being lost through the kidneys. It is used to determine whether a puppy may have serious kidney disease.
Globulin

Globulin

This is a group of proteins. Some of them are made by your liver. Others are made by your immune system. They help fight infection and transport nutrients.
Blood Glucose

Blood Glucose

A blood glucose test is used to find out if your blood sugar levels are in the healthy range. It is often used to help diagnose and monitor diabetes and look for hypoglycemia.
Total Protein

Total Protein

The total protein test measures the total amount of protein in your blood and specifically looks for the amount of albumin and globulin.
Molecule

Bile Acid Test

$99.95 or FREE if Chem 10 results show high levels of ALT

Bile acids are compounds that are made in the liver and stored in the gall bladder. The bile acid test is a very useful test that helps to determine if the liver is working properly. Specifically, the test answers three questions:

Does the liver have enough healthy cells to do its job?
Does the liver have a good blood supply?
Is bile moving freely through and out of the liver?

The bile acid test is based on the principle that a healthy liver can "recycle" bile acids, while a damaged or defective liver cannot.

This test rules out liver shunts which is a common genetic defect in small breed puppies.
Molecule

SDMA & Total T4 Test

SDMA & T4 Test

$99.95 or FREE if Chem 10 results show high levels of BUN, CREA, B:C Ratio

Assess kidney function with this essential chemistry parameter. SDMA test is a useful tool to assess glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and detect changes to kidney function much earlier than with creatinine and BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) tests alone. Symmetric Dimethyl Arginine (SDMA) is excreted from the kidneys; therefore, as kidney function or GFR decreases, SDMA increases.
