In some cases, our veterinarians require answers from more advanced testing, and we turn to outside laboratories for results. The veterinary laboratories we partner with can typically provide next-day results, so we can begin treating your pet as soon as possible.
- Blood work — A complete blood count (CBC) and blood chemistry profile are used to assess your pet’s organ function, clotting ability, electrolyte levels, and more. Blood work can also tell if your pet is anemic, has an infection or inflammation, or is dehydrated.
- Parasite screening — Using blood and fecal samples, we can check to see if your pet has heartworms, tick-borne illnesses, or intestinal parasites.
- Cytology — Looking at various samples under the microscope can tell us if your pet has an ear infection, mange, or a cancerous tumor.
- Urinalysis — A urinalysis imparts information about how well your pet’s kidneys are functioning, or if they have a urinary tract infection or bladder stones.
If your pet is not feeling well, contact us for an appointment. Leveraging our diagnostic capabilities, we will decipher the problem quickly, and help your pet on the road to recovery.
