In-House Lab

In-house Laboratory

In critical situations, our in-house laboratory equipment ensures your pet gets fast accurate results when time is essential to the treatment plan.

Rapid accurate results equal speedy diagnosis for your beloved animal. The sooner we have a diagnosis the sooner the treatment plan can be implemented meaning two important things; a shorter stay in the hospital saving you time, making it more economical for you, but more importantly, your pet will feel better sooner.

PRE-ANESTHETIC BLOOD TESTING

Pre-anesthetic blood testing provides insight as to what is occurring internally. We are especially concerned with the health of the liver and kidneys as these organs help the body get rid of the medications used during anesthesia. This testing could uncover health concerns which cannot be detected from the physical exam alone. Our in-clinic lab allows us to run the blood work the morning of surgery.

SENIOR WELLNESS TESTING

As your pet reaches those golden years, routine check-ups combined with annual blood work can be vital to early detection of abnormalities when no symptoms are present, we offer age-specific wellness panels for your canine and feline companions. The wellness panel includes complete blood count (CBC), full chemistry panel including electrolytes & urinalysis. For cats, we add on a thyroid test (T4).

HEARTWORM/LYMES TESTING

We recommend bi-annual heartworm testing for all our patients. Even if your pet has been on a heartworm preventive all its life, there is always the chance of one missed pill or even a manufacturing error that can put your pet at risk. Our heartworm test also tests for three tick-borne illnesses, including Lyme disease. It only takes 1 bite from a mosquito or 1 tick for your pet to become infected.

How to help injured and orphaned wild animals

Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife.  First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
