Laboratory Services

We recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing for all of our patients. While optional for young and healthy pets, senior pets (over seven years of age) are required to be tested due to possible increased anesthetic risk.

The information obtained allows us to understand whether your pet’s vital organs are functioning properly, may reveal undetected health problems and avoid potential anesthetic/surgical complications. If your pet has abnormal test results, we may then take special precautions during surgery or even reschedule it. Normal blood work gives us baseline information that we can refer to if your animal becomes ill.

Most testing can be performed in house or will be sent out to an outside lab for further testing. Here are just some of the laboratory services we provide:

Pre-Anesthetic Testing
Wellness Profiles
Vector(tick)-borne Diseases
Cytology / Histopathology
Fecal Analysis
Skin Scrape
Heartworm Testing

Heartworm is a progressive, life-threatening disease transmitted by mosquitos. The earlier it is detected and treated, the better the chances that your pet will recover and have less complications.

Vector(tick)-borne Diseases

Our heartworm test also tests for Lyme, Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichia.

Felv/FIV Viral Testing

All new kittens and cats should be tested for leukemia and FIV. The feline leukemia virus has the potential to be latent in a carrier cat without any signs of illness and this carrier state can persist for years. During this time, the cat is contagious and at risk for numerous problems.

Knowing that a cat is positive allows you to save money by not unnecessarily vaccinating for feline leukemia. Further, if an owner is aware of a cat's positive status, precautions can be taken to keep your cat healthy and prevent further spread of the disease.
