Annual screenings and lab tests are essential components of wellness care. Laboratory testing helps us pinpoint any changes to the health of your pet.
These tests are instrumental in diagnosing many problems, including internal parasites, the presence of an infection, and conditions like anemia.
Our laboratory services cover all of the following commonly performed tests:
Complete blood cell count
To determine blood parameters as well whether an infection is present.
An overview of how well the organs are functioning, including testing for the presence of diseases.
Instrumental in diagnosing diabetes, urinary tract infections, and other conditions affecting the kidneys and bladder.
To detect the presence of feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).
Vector-borne disease screening
For the diagnosis of tick-borne illnesses, such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis.
To detect dehydration, changes to kidney function, and diseases such as Addison’s disease.
This disease, caused by the bite of an infected mosquito, continues to be on the rise in dogs and cats, which makes your pet annual screening important.
Intestinal parasite check
To screen for internal gut parasites.
Depending on the type of test, results are often available within 24 to 48 hours.
