Advanced Diagnostics

Better diagnostics means better medicine.

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory allows us to do in-house diagnostics such as bloodwork, urinalysis and fecal analysis. The information provided by labwork gives our staff the information necessary to identify or eliminate the concern of a wide range of problems.

  • A chemistry panel provides information about protein levels, liver enzymes, kidney enzymes, and blood sugar levels. The results provide insight on the animal’s organ function and diabetes.
  • A complete blood count provides information on white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Out of balance blood counts are an indicator for a number of potential problems.
  • A heartworm blood test identifies the potentially fatal heartworm parasite. This parasite is transmitted through mosquitoes and is avoided with preventative medication and annual blood testing. For more information on heartworm, the American Heartworm Society has a wealth of information: American Heartworm Society Heartworm Basics
Urinalysis: provides information for determining kidney health, diabetes, urinary tract infection, crystals, and blood in the urine.

Fecal Analysis: is a method for identifying intestinal parasites such as worms, giardia, and coccidia. In addition, imbalances in bacteria and blood and inflammatory cells can be identified.
