When is In-House Laboratory Testing Necessary?

In-house laboratory testing may be recommended in various situations, including:

  • Routine wellness exams to assess your pet’s overall health
  • Pre-anesthetic screening before surgery or dental procedures
  • Evaluation of symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or weight loss
  • Monitoring of chronic conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, or thyroid disorders

If your pet is exhibiting any signs of illness or if you have concerns about their health, our veterinary team may recommend diagnostic testing as part of their evaluation.

Comprehensive Diagnostic Testing

Blood Tests: Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform comprehensive blood tests, including complete blood counts (CBC), blood chemistry panels, and thyroid function tests. These tests provide valuable insights into your pet’s overall health, including organ function, blood cell counts, and metabolic status.

Urinalysis: Urinalysis is an essential diagnostic tool that helps us evaluate your pet’s kidney function, urinary tract health, and overall hydration status. Our in-house laboratory enables us to perform urinalysis tests quickly and accurately, allowing us to diagnose and monitor urinary tract infections, kidney disease, and other urinary conditions.

Fecal Examinations: Fecal examinations are essential for detecting intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, and giardia. Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform fecal examinations promptly, enabling us to diagnose and treat parasitic infections early and prevent further complications.
