The Benefit of an In-House Laboratory

As part of our diagnostic tools, we are proud to house a vast array of advanced laboratory equipment that allows us to perform tests with results available the same day and in many instances while you wait. In the event of an emergency or your pet is sick, the ability to have this useful information at our finger tips means we can help your pet faster.

Some of the tests we offer through our in-house laboratory include:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Culture & Sensitivity
  • Ear Cytology
  • Pre-surgical bloodwork or other organ specific chemistries
  • Urinalysis
  • 4dx (Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrlichia, Anaplasmosis)

We also use outside laboratories for specialized diagnostic testing such as:

  • Allergy Screening
  • Culture & Sensitivity
  • Cytology and Histopathology
  • Stone Analysis
  • Therapeutic Drug Levels
  • Titers (measure of disease infection or protection)

The utilization of laboratories, both our in-house and the external ones that we choose to use play a large role in helping to rule out, or confirm diagnosis of disease in your pet. This is known as “point-of-care” testing and rivals that of human medicine with respect to speed and accuracy. If you have any questions about what tests are available through our in-house lab, or the ones that we work with, please contact us.
