Lab Services

Our in-house laboratory services provide valuable and comprehensive answers without having to wait for results to come back from an outside laboratory.

Some of the in-house testing we have the ability to do are:

  • Coagulation Screen – Checks your pets ability to clot blood.
  • Chemistry Profile – Analyzes liver and kidney values.
  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) – Checks hydration level and signs of infection and inflammation.
  • Total Thyroid – Quantitative value of thyroid function.
  • Urinalysis – Further analysis of kidney function as well as determines presence of infection.
  • Fecal Centrifugation – Determines presence of intestinal parasites.
  • Heartworm Test – Determines presence of heartworms.

These are the most common in-house tests we perform, but we do have the ability to run many more should the need arise.

The heartworm test, fecal centrifugation, and chemistry profile are recommended for all of our patients at their annual visit with the doctor as a further measure of their health. Depending on your pet’s age, breed, overall health, etc. the doctor may suggest further screenings.

While we do have ability to run most tests in house some are more cost effective for you, the client, to have them sent out. What this means is that most of our blood screenings are sent to an outside lab. However for preanesthetic or emergent cases we have the ability to have diagnostic results right away to give your pet the best care possible.

Dental Services

Proper dental care is proven to extend your pet’s life. Thorough inspection of the teeth and gums is ont of the most important aspects of a pet’s routine examination.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography has replaced the traditional x-ray films in much the same way that the digital camera has replaced traditional camera films.

Dental Radiography

Only about one third of a tooth is actually visible with the unaided eye. Dental imaging helps the doctor to uncover hidden dental problem areas in our patients

Ultrasound

The ultrasound machine generates a high-frequency sound beam through a wand that is strategically placed on a patient. As the beam passes harmlessly through the patient, a computer is used to generate an image based on the amount of sound reflected back.
