Re: BB's lab work..

Yeah I don't understand all that stuff either. The vet say everything was ok? I'm actually sitting at the vet right now with both Chessie and jazz. Getting some much needed bloodwork ourselves!

Re: BB's lab work..

I understand it but I can't see it!!! It looks like 3 levels were abnormal, but the only one I can read is that his Hemoglobin is extremely low, meaning that the ability for his red blood cells to bind and carry oxygen around his body is very low...This is usually an indication that his Iron is very low, so he's most-likely very anemic, though I can't read the rest of the values to tell...

Re: BB's lab work..

Ideally BB's vet should take the time to fully explain the results and recommendations, but we all know sometimes reality is different!

Can't read them either, check out these links to understanding avian blood panels. (can't vouch for the information as accurate)

Re: BB's lab work..

I don't know much about lab results, but I am an expert in cuteness, and I am happy to report that the Beebs retains a perfect Cuteness Coefficient of 10!

I have to agree with above.

I have to get my Pepper in as well to get blood work done soon, as she the only one left in the flock that hasn't had blood work done in a while. Hoping within range? She does fly and is my most active cockatiel.

Re: BB's lab work..

Impossible read due to focus, but tests with graphical results should be in the middle or so. The ones that are extremely to the left or right arenot good and yoour vet should explain them to you. Was this a wellness checkup or for a specific reason?

Re: BB's lab work..

Sorry guys for the crappy photo's buy Ellen you are correct after really looking at the results. The doctor didn't give me the results one of the techs did. I think I'll need to give them a call. I'll try to post better pics also.

Re: BB's lab work..

Yeah, I can't read the actual values (the numbers) or the names of some of the tests, but I can see the "level to normal" graph at the end of each test, and his Hemoglobin is very low, and it looks like another level is low and then another one is quite high, but I can't read what tests they are...I would absolutely call your CAV and discuss the values, because BB is at the very least quite Anemic, so I'm not sure why a Vet Tech would tell you that everything is fine....It may not be a huge deal, maybe it is, it depends on what the other test values are in relation to the Hemoglobin, so you definitely need to call your CAV to discuss and make sure that it's just a dietary adjustment or due to something that your CAV already expected...
