Our in-house laboratory is a key in providing our patients with top-quality care. Obtaining the test results we need allows our team to accurately diagnose and treat your pet in a timely manner. Here are a few of the ways that pet patients benefit from it:
- Parasite prevention: Heartworm and fecal tests are an important part of your pet’s overall wellness care. They enable our veterinarians to eradicate any parasites present and suggest appropriate prevention measures going forward.
- Preoperative blood screening: Prior to any surgical procedure, it is essential to conduct a blood work profile to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to be placed under anesthesia.
- Specialized blood tests: As pets age, they become prone to developing certain diseases. Our veterinarians will recommend blood tests as needed to check senior pets’ hormone levels and organ function.
- Emergency care: When critical care is needed, our in-house laboratory can produce test results in 30 minutes or less, enabling our veterinarians to begin treatment right away.
