What does a high white blood cell count mean in dogs?

There is not a limit on how high the white blood cell count can run in dogs. However, a normal total white blood cell count is between approximately 5000 - 15,000.

An elevated white blood cell count is not normal and can signal a problem, which will need to be looked at by a vet.

They are many problems that high white blood cell levels in dogs can indicate, which include:

  • Infection.
  • Inflammation.
  • Stress.
  • Neoplasia.
If your dog has an elevated white blood cell count, you should talk to your veterinarian about the possible causes, diagnostics and treatments needed.
