Primary Care

In-House Laboratory

Since your sick pet cannot tell us what is wrong, veterinarians must sometimes supplement physical exams with sophisticated diagnostic testing. Our hospital is equipped with a complete in-house laboratory that allows us to measure more than 75 laboratory values, with results often available in a few minutes. This allows your pet to receive appropriate medical treatment in a timely manner. We use laboratory testing not only to diagnose disease, but also monitor treatment progress.

In addition, we work hand in hand with several outside reference labs. Reference laboratories provide us with advanced bloodwork, such as thyroid and seizure medication levels, urine testing, and culture, cytology, and biopsy results to further maintain your pet’s health.
