Since not all animal health problems can be caught through a physical exam, we pride ourselves in having the best laboratory and diagnostic facilities in the veterinary industry. We have a vast array of laboratory tests and diagnostic equipment that help us give you the most accurate picture of your pet’s health. Making sure we have this equipment not only makes our hospital better, it ensures that your pet has the best care possible, as quickly as possible.
Among the common types of diagnostic testing is the in-house cytology. Cytologies can be performed on the skin or the ears and determines whether the infection your pet is experiencing is due to yeast or bacteria. Other diagnostic tests, such as blood work and urinalyses, are increasingly important for your aging pet as well. They can also help uncover growing problems in your adult pet. Intestinal parasite tests, or “fecals,” are helpful as a diagnostic tool and a routine check for microscopic parasites.
