In-House Laboratory Equipment & Understanding Your Pet’s Blood Tests
The benefits of on-site laboratory equipment mean we can conduct blood work tests and receive your pet’s results within hours. A fast diagnosis allows us to treat the issue promptly.
Blood tests help us determine the causes of illness accurately, safely, and quickly and let us monitor the progress of medical treatments. Blood testing is often recommended as it helps the veterinarian diagnose and treat different conditions, such as parasites, allergies, diabetes and kidney failure. A common blood test is called a CBC (complete blood count), which helps show the general health of a pet. Our on-site laboratory will give us the information we need quickly to help your pet.
