Sometimes your pet’s illness or health disorder may be easily detected upon physical exam by our veterinarians. But there are times when an examination is not enough and special laboratory tests are necessary to aid in diagnosing. Diagnostic testing also aids in measuring a patient’s progress and can confirm a disease-free status. Our hospital is well-equipped with laboratory machines that can quickly and precisely test patient samples.
Some of the test capabilities include:
- Blood Chemistries
- Complete Blood Count
- Clotting Time
- Urine Specific Gravity
Other rapid in-house tests include:
- Canine Parvovirus
- Pancreatitis (PLI)
- Feline leukemia
- Feline Immunodeficiency virus
- Heartworm Disease
A wide array of additional laboratory services and special testing is available. Samples are submitted to our reference laboratory, Antec, with test results typically available within 1-3 days.
