ABG analysis is a technique available to all veterinarians through commercial laboratories or local hospitals. Information obtained from these tests will allow for a better understanding of the pathophysiology of naturally occurring diseases as well as assisting in the determination of the efficacy of various therapeutic agents (such as bronchodilators), which to date has been lacking in veterinary medicine.
