Our veterinary pathology specialists have access to hematology analyzers which perform complete blood counts (CBC). A CBC is a blood test used to measure and evaluate cells that circulate in the blood. The test includes an actual counting of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets and a blood smear is viewed under the microscope. A CBC is indicated in any ill animal and it is also performed prior to anesthesia or surgery to evaluate general health. A CBC is a useful screening test for underlying infection, anemia and illness in pets.

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.
