Our In-House Laboratory

Our lab can teach us a lot about your pet. It can run several different tests including tests on your pet’s blood, stool, urine, skin cells, and more. Lab work plays an especially important role in your pet’s annual exam, when we’ll often run blood work which can help us catch subtle signs of disease and offer treatment before it has time to progress.

We commonly run the following tests:

  • CBCs (complete blood counts)
  • Blood chemistry panels (to analyze components such as proteins, glucose, or electrolyte levels)
  • Urinalysis (to assess kidney and bladder health)
  • Fecal exams (to check for intestinal parasites)
  • Cytology (analyzing skin cells for abnormalities)
  • Biopsies (to examine tissue for cancer cells)

Advanced Veterinary Imaging Technology

With digital X-rays and ultrasound, we’re able to get an internal view of your pet’s skeletal structure and organs to detect abnormalities. We often use these two technologies in tandem to give a complete view of your pet’s internal structures. Digital X-ray and ultrasound work in tandem providing us a full, complete picture of your pet’s internal workings. Digital X-rays give us a detailed, static view of bones and other structures while ultrasound lets us see organs and the abdominal cavity all in motion.

We commonly use X-ray and ultrasound for the following:

  • Fractures
  • Locating foreign objects
  • Detecting kidney or bladder stones
  • Assessing organ health and function
  • Monitoring a pet’s pregnancy
  • And so much more
