In-House Laboratory Testing

  • Serum Chemistry: These tests evaluate organ function, electrolyte status, hormone levels, and more, providing essential information about your pet’s health.
  • Hematology: This involves analyzing your pet’s blood to assess conditions such as anemia, infection, and hydration status. It can provide critical information about health issues that affect the blood cells.
  • Serology: Serological testing helps us detect the presence of specific antibodies or antigens related to infectious diseases, ensuring timely and appropriate treatment.
  • Urinalysis: A urinalysis is crucial for assessing the health of your pet’s kidneys and urinary tract. It can help detect infections, diabetes, dehydration, kidney problems, and other health issues.
  • Parasite Testing: Regular testing for parasites is vital for your pet’s health. Our laboratory can conduct fecal exams to check for the presence of intestinal parasites like roundworms, hookworms, and others.
