Puppies body systems are immature and to undertake a full blood and urinalysis before the age of 12 to 18 months could possibly produce spurious results.
Therefore, unless a Veterinarian advises a full blood and urinalysis, this is not required.
Responsible breeders, prior to homing their puppies, undertake tests on their litters.
These may include:
- Basic kidney function - this is a blood test taken at approximately seven weeks of age to assess kidney function and can usually be completed by your vet ‘in-house’.
