In-house Laboratory

Accurate clinical pathology data is invaluable in identifying and diagnosing all kinds of diseases, from relatively simple flea, ear mite and heartworm manifestations to more complex kidney failure and endocrine complications.  Having an in-house laboratory allows us to perform routine testing while you wait so we can start treating your animal as quickly as possible.  We have the capability to analyze complete blood counts (CBC’s), chemistry panels, urinalyses, fecal flotations and cytology, FeLV/FIV screening tests, and Lyme/Heartworm/Ehrlichia/Anaplasmosis SNAP tests (also known as a 4DX).

To ensure your pet receives the best care available, more complicated analyses are sent to a nearby lab that specializes in veterinary testing, though these results are often available within 24-48 business hours.
