With a small blood sample, we can perform a basic wellness profile for your dog or cat. This can be done in conjunction with their annual physical exam. Wellness laboratory testing is used to assist the veterinarian in detecting health problems at an early stage. Laboratory results provide valuable information to evaluate the condition of your pet’s vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and heart. These tests can provide a baseline for future comparison to detect changes in your pet’s health.
A wide variety of laboratory tests are available for your dog and cat. Complete blood counts, blood chemistry, urinalysis, parasite testing, and viral screening are just a few of the many tests performed by our off-site veterinary laboratory. Test results are received on the same business day for many of these tests.
