Blood parasites can cause some change from CBC test.
Anemia, thrombocytopenia(low platelets), leukopenia are mostly found but results can be vary. Blood parasite such as Ehrlichiosis , Anaplasma, and heartworm may show individual signs. Sometimes when the platelets is very low, I commonly see epistaxis and petechial hemorrhage. I suggest to bring your dogs to the vet if you have noticed those external parasites such as tick and flea. Mosquitoes are everywhere so dogs can get heartworm infection anytime.
CBC should be included in annual health checkup for every dogs.
