Laboratory Services

In-house diagnostic testing produces rapid results that can quickly identify problems your pet may be experiencing so that proper treatment can begin.


Unfortunately, pets can’t tell us where it hurts, and oftentimes, a healthy appearing animal may be masking symptoms of disease or illness. We recommend veterinary diagnostic testing to identify any problems and to begin treatment as early as possible. These tests are especially helpful when symptoms are unspecific or hard to define.

When would laboratory work be needed?

When your pet comes in for critical or emergency care, our diagnostic lab will run various tests as necessary to determine the best treatment for your pet. Rapid results are available so we can begin treatment right away.

How do veterinarians use laboratory work?

We can check your pet's cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, and skeletal systems for any abnormalities. We may also perform blood and/or urine tests if necessary to check their kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system. Based on your pet’s condition, we may recommend further diagnostic testing.

If you’re concerned that something may be wrong with your pet, please bring them in to our hospital.
