Laboratory Testing

Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform many types of testing that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet right here in our hospital.  We recommend and highly encourage that your pet have pre-anesthetic blood testing performed prior to any anesthetic procedure. These tests confirm that your pet's organs are functioning properly. The tests also reveal hidden health conditions that could put your pet at risk.

Some of the testing we offer in-house include:

  • Blood Chemistries
  • Complete blood counts
  • Blood gases
  • Pancreatitis testing
  • Blood clotting times
  • Urine tests
  • Skin scrapes
  • Test for viruses (Parvovirus, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)
  • Heartworm disease
  • Fecal examinations (testing for the presence of hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, and roundworms)
  • Ear cytology
  • Mass cytology
  • Skin cytology
  • Bacterial cultures
  • Fungal cultures
  • Comprehensive thyroid panels
  • Tick panels
  • Vaccine titers
  • Cytology
  • Histopathology

Wellness testing can help catch many conditions early before they become serious illnesses. Be sure to ask your veterinarian about which tests your pet may need during your pet’s next wellness exam.

**We also utilize an outside laboratory for performing tests that we are unable to perform in-house.
