    Does anyone know what blood tests are done for elimination purposes to give a diagnosis of idiopathic epilepsy and approximate cost?

    Am not sure if this is any help. Just had blood tests for my dog. On receipt its classed as an extended blood screen. It was done in house, so it is cheaper than ones I have had, when blood is sent away. It covered blood counts, liver enzymes, and thyroid and maybe some other things. So probably not that complex. It cost £63. So the test may be irrelevant but thought it may help price wise. I think my vet's prices are reasonable for my area though. But prices do vary so much.

    Can't find other blood test paper work at the moment, from previous times but I know some have been cheaper and some more expensive
