In House Laboratory

In House Laboratory

After a physical exam is performed on your pet, our staff may need to do additional testing to be able to confirm your pet’s diagnosis. We are proud of our in-house diagnostic capabilities. The equipment that we have available gives us the capacity to perform complete blood counts, blood chemistry panels, and urinalysis. In addition, we can do microbiologic exams, cultures and exam specimens for parasites. Having the ability to do laboratory testing at our clinic saves time so that we can make a diagnosis and get your pet treated as soon as possible.

Occasionally, there are laboratory tests that need to be performed that we do not have the capability of doing at our clinic. We can refer these tests to several different laboratories in the area. Even though we are located in a small town, your pet will have access to any tests that he may need by sending samples to referral centers.
