In-House Laboratory

Our hospital is equipped with an In-House Laboratory that enables our veterinarians to quickly perform diagnostic tests on a variety of body fluids (ear swabs, blood, urine, feces, etc. 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.

Ocean County Veterinary Hospital can perform a wide array of diagnostic tests to quickly assess your pet's health and determine what therapy is required. These include:

  • Blood tests performed on premises or at an accredited lab with rapid turnaround time
  • Ultrasound examinations of the chest and abdomen
  • Telemedicine consultations with Board-Certified Specialists
  • Endoscopy
  • X-rays
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Blood pressure screening
  • Glaucoma screening
  • Microscopic examinations of skin, hair, etc.
  • Fecal examinations for parasites
  • Urinalysis for infections, crystals, and stones
