In-House Laboratory

Our complete in-house laboratory allows us to obtain vital diagnostic information on sick pets and to evaluate animals prior to anesthesia. By having in-house diagnostics we are able to get results quickly and start treatment as needed. Most of our testing can be completed in less than 20 minutes.

Our in-house diagnostics include:

  • CBCs (complete blood count)
  • Blood chemistry panels (including complete analysis, liver panel, kidney/electrolyte panel)
  • Thyroid screening
  • Heartworm testing
  • Tick borne disease testing
  • FELV/FIV (feline leukemia/feline AIDS) testing
  • Clotting times
  • Fecal examination (including direct, floatation, and giardia)
  • Parvovirus testing
  • Sedivue Urinalysis with Microscopic analysis
  • Cytology (ear and skin)
  • Fungal cultures (ringworm)
  • Fine needle aspirates (used to help diagnose types of masses/lumps)
  • Blood pressure
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)

For more advanced testing we send samples to a trusted national laboratory.
