Benefits of In-House Lab Testing:

  • Faster turnaround time: Imagine not having to wait days for blood test results! Our in-house lab delivers results within 10 minutes, allowing your veterinarian to diagnose and discuss treatment options with you during your appointment.
  • Convenience: No more running around for separate lab appointments. Having bloodwork done in-house streamlines the process, saving you valuable time and reducing stress for your pet.
  • Potentially lower costs: In-house testing can be a more cost-effective option compared to utilizing external laboratories.

What kind of tests are offered?

Our in-house laboratory offers a comprehensive range of blood tests commonly used for:

  • Routine checkups: Regular bloodwork helps monitor your pet’s overall health and identify potential issues early on.
  • Screening for diseases: Certain blood tests can screen for underlying conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, or liver problems.
  • Pre-surgical evaluations: Bloodwork is often necessary before surgical procedures to ensure your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia.

We understand that every pet’s needs are unique. If your pet requires a more specialized or complex diagnostic test, we collaborate with trusted external laboratories to ensure they receive the most comprehensive care possible.

Don’t hesitate to ask! During your appointment, discuss any questions you have about the in-house laboratory services or your pet’s specific testing needs. Our veterinarians are here to provide clear explanations and ensure you feel confident in your pet’s healthcare journey.
