Our in-house laboratory enables us to do a wide range of diagnostic testing for monitoring and diagnosing your pet’s health with results often available within hours.
Additional diagnostic aids available include radiology (x-rays), limited ultrasound, EKG and Doppler blood pressure monitoring.
We use the Abaxis Vet Scan Analyzer which allows us to have kidney, liver, glucose, proteins, electrolyte and thyroid test results within hours. Our Heska HemaTrue Analyzer gives us complete blood counts and platelet counts in minutes. We are also able to do complete urinalysis, fecal testing, heartworm, feline leukemia and FIV testing, tick disease testing (Lyme, Erlichia and Anaplasmosis). Fine needle aspirate and body fluid analysis can be completed in-house. Full histopathology (biopsy) services are also available through an outside pathology laboratory.
When specialized tests are necessary, we use the best referral laboratories including Idexx, Antech, Cornell Diagnostic Laboratory, Wadsworth Laboratory, Michigan State University Laboratory, Kansas State University Rabies Lab, ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, Texas A&M University Laboratory, University of Minnesota Urolith Center, Heska Veterinary Diagnostic Lab, Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Cytopathology, and UC Davis Neuromuscular Laboratory.
