Laboratory Testing

Since your sick pet cannot tell us what is wrong, our veterinarians must sometimes supplement physical exams with laboratory testing. Our hospital is equipped with a diagnostic laboratory that allows us to quickly assess routine blood values within a few minutes. This is especially beneficial in an emergency situation when patients require immediate test results in life-threatening situations.

In addition, most of our staff has been trained to make slide and assess aspirates from lumps,

interpret urine samples, read blood smears, and diagnose which organisms are responsible for

skin and ear infections.

When time is not of the essence, we also work with clinical pathologists and internal medicine

specialists at several outside diagnostic laboratories and major universities for more

specialized testing.
