Laboratory Testing for Pets

To help find answers quickly, we have on site equipment in our hospital that can run a wide range of both blood and urine tests which often gives us results within the hour. Other tests are sent to an accredited outside lab. The benefit of a rapid diagnosis is a more immediate and accurate treatment for your pet.

We know you are worried when your pet is ill. We will explain what is happening with their progress and diagnosis as best as we can in clear and simple terms using both illustrations and test results. When we take the time to answer your concerns thoroughly we feel that we are working together with you.

Our site laboratory allows us to do many biochemical tests for immediate interpretation. This can be very valuable in an emergency situation or simply just convenient for pre-surgical evaluations.

Many cytological samples can have a preliminary assessment in our hospital prior to sending them out to the laboratory for a more thorough reporting.

This is no truer than when we are collecting biopsy samples. In these situations we want to confirm in advance that the histopathologist will be able to work with the tissues that we are providing to them. This simple step helps to dramatically prevent repeat samplings on another day and possibly with a whole new anesthetic for your pet.
