Detecting Illness with Diagnostics
Utilizing Our In-House Lab
Our in-house lab is able to run different blood tests as well as disease screenings, fecal analyses, and more. We use our own lab for urgent cases that demand a timely test and result. For most non-urgent cases, we send our sample out to a specialty lab which cuts down on costs for you and allows us to get effective results.
Tests we often run include:
- Annual bloodwork including complete blood count (CBCs)
- Blood chemistry panels for seniors
- Fecal exams
- Heartworm testing for dogs
- Tick-borne disease testing if needed
- Urinalysis if needed
- Skin scrapings
- And more
Bloodwork and disease screenings are some of the cornerstones of your pet’s annual wellness visit. It allows us to establish their baseline results and more readily pick up on changes in the future. Early detection with bloodwork is key to effective treatment and fast recovery from many illnesses.
