In House Laboratory

Diagnostic laboratory equipment enables our veterinary technicians to perform a variety of in-house testing. CBC's, blood chemistry profiles, urinalysis, heartworm testing, feline leukemia/aids testing, fecal analysis, and fungal cultures are among the tests performed routinely in our facility. Not only is accurate, in-hospital laboratory work essential for the doctor's ability to diagnose and treat pets in a timely manner, but also plays an important role in preventative health care. Pre-anesthetic blood testing is always recommended for pets of any age before procedures to help ensure that there are no hidden metabolic problems that may cause trouble during anesthesia, and is required for pets over 8 years of age.
