A minimum database for most illnesses includes a complete blood count (CBC), serum chemistry, and urinalysis. In addition, radiographs (x-rays) and/or more specific, specialized tests may be needed.

Complex cases may require referral for additional imaging (ultrasound, CT scan, MRI) and diagnostic tests.
