Primary Care

In-House Laboratory

We’re very proud of our new in-house laboratory, which provides our veterinarians with blood test (including complete blood count, blood chemistry, electrolytes), and urinalysis results within minutes! This is important for emergency care of your pet, as well as for surgical anesthesia, or if our veterinarians need to quickly re-check your pet for blood sugar or kidney values.

For more specialized testing, or if we want the opinion of a veterinary pathologist (on a biopsy, for instance), we send samples to a leading veterinary reference laboratory. This outside lab picks up samples from our hospital twice every day, and many results come back in just six hours.
