Diagnostics and Testing
In-house Laboratory Testing
Feline Leukemia and Immunodeficiency Testing
Sometimes, a diagnosis can be made with a thorough physical exam and a good history from the owner. However, when that is not enough, our hospital has the knowledge base, experienced team, and specialized equipment vital to make the diagnosis.
We maintain a full in-house lab for rapidly running most blood and urine tests such as complete blood counts, chemistry screens, electrolyte levels, clotting times, and urinalysis. We also offer in-house cytology and fungal cultures when needed. For other testing, we send samples to our reference laboratory partner, An-tech Labs.
Our hospital also features the latest in diagnostic imaging tools. We have a digital X-ray unit and a mobile ultrasound consultant available for evaluating your pet in the event imaging is needed to make a diagnosis. If needed, your pet’s imaging studies can be emailed to a board-certified radiologist for immediate review.
Finally, we have various other specialized equipment for measuring blood pressure, performing remote ECG’s, and measuring ocular pressures.
In the event your pet needs diagnostics or specialist level care beyond our capabilities, we may offer you a referral.
