Coagulation (blood clotting) tests are necessary in pets that are suspected of having bleeding disorders. Bleeding disorders are diseases in which the blood does not clot normally, causing a tendency to bleed abnormally or excessively after minor bumps or cuts. The most common causes of bleeding disorders include low numbers of platelets or blood clotting factors. Our veterinary pathology specialists have access to in-house laboratory tests that measure platelets and clotting factors to help them achieve a rapid diagnosis and institute an appropriate treatment plan in the event of a bleeding emergency. Our veterinary pathology specialists can also send coagulation samples to an outside laboratory for the identification of inherited bleeding disorders such as hemophilia.

Clinical Pathology

Our veterinarians have access to extensive laboratory services which help them determine the cause of a pet's illness. Common laboratory services and tests include blood chemistries, complete blood counts, blood clotting times, urinalysis, fecal examination, and infectious disease testing. Our animal hospital is equipped with an In-House Laboratory that allows our veterinarians to quickly perform many diagnostic tests to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis. This is especially important in very ill animals and those requiring immediate or emergency treatment. While not all samples can be analyzed in-house; when this capability is combined with our outside laboratory services, a full comprehensive laboratory evaluation is obtained. Depending on the nature of the test being performed, most results will be available to our veterinarians either immediately or within 24 to 72 hours. Some specialized testing may require 1 to 2 weeks to be complete. Ask your veterinarian when to call for your laboratory results.
