Laboratory testing is critical to the management of ill and injured patients, evaluation for preanesthesia and to establish normal baselines as a pet is aging. Because prompt results are extremely beneficial, we have a fully equipped state-of-the-art laboratory on our premises. This capability allows us to better diagnose and treat your pet accurately and expeditiously.
Complete blood counts, chemistry panels, electrolytes, urinalysis, heartworm tests and feline leukemia and aids tests are all run routinely. Also, cytology of ear swabs, fecals, skin scrapings, vaginal smears and urinalysis can all be processed and evaluated immediately.
More specialized testing such as potassium bromide, phenobarbital and cortisol blood levels, histopathology (biopsy of abnormal tissue) or body fluid cultures are processed and shipped to various specialty laboratories outside of the area.
