In-House-Lab

Laboratory & Diagnostics

We are equipped with sophisticated blood analysis machines that allow us to measure many laboratory values. As a compliment to our regular laboratory services, our in-house diagnostic blood analyzers allow us to get blood work back on the same day. This is ideal for emergency and pre-surgical blood analysis.

A tonopen is an instrument that allows us to measure the pressure inside of the eye. Glaucoma is a painful disease that is characterized by increased eye pressure and often leads to blindness. Early detection is the key to preserving vision. Annual evaluations of breeds predisposed to glaucoma and patients with ocular medical conditions are recommended.

Testing provided in the hospital includes:

Chemistry Panels:

  • Liver enzyme screening
  • Pancreatic evaluation
  • Renal (Kidney) profiles

Wellness screenings:

  • Complete blood counts
  • General chemistries
  • Blood gases
  • Urinalysis
  • Fecal testing (parasites)
  • Blood pressure

 Viral screenings:

  • FelV in cats
  • Parvovirus in dogs

While we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, it is possible that your pet may need laboratory work beyond our scope. For those cases, we are happy to send blood work or other testing to an outside lab that will send results back to us.
