Veterinary Lab Services

In-House & Commercial Lab

The majority of our laboratory testing is performed by a commercial veterinary laboratory with twice-a-day specimen pickup, and most results are available within 24 hours. Our in-house laboratory equipment allows us to do a complete biochemistry profile for your cat or dog when results are needed right away. Additionally, we perform pre-operative screenings, heartworm testing, FELV/FIV testing, pancreatitis screens, Giardia antibody testing, Parvovirus testing, and urinalyses in-house. We also perform fecal centrifugations in the hospital on patients with vomiting or diarrhea; otherwise all routine fecal samples are sent to our outside lab.

Specialized Lab Testing

We also have relationships with several large universities and specialized laboratories. This allows us to request some of the more unique tests that our commercial labs do not offer, such as extensive endocrine testing, neuromuscular testing, serum allergy testing and even breed specific DNA testing.
