Our hospital is equipped with a complete, sophisticated diagnostic laboratory that allows us to measure more than 100 laboratory values, with results often available in just a few minutes. For tests that cannot be performed at the hospital, we partner with a high-quality outside laboratory. 

By performing some basic diagnostic tests, your veterinarian can gather information concerning the health and well-being of your pet. Below you can find information on some of the most commonly-used laboratory tests we perform.

Complete Blood Count (CBC)

CBC measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in a sample of blood. The numbers of each type of cell provide information to help diagnose anemia, infections, and leukemia. If your pet is undergoing treatment for a condition, a complete blood count can help your veterinarian monitor how your pet is responding to the treatment.

Blood-Chemistry Panel (Chem)

A blood chemistry panel measures electrolytes, enzymes, and chemical elements of your pet’s blood. Included in a Chem profile are important components such as calcium and phosphorous levels, liver enzymes, glucose, and total protein. These measurements help your veterinarian determine how your pet’s organs, such as the kidneys, pancreas, and liver, are functioning. Blood chemistry panels help diagnose and treat illness, as well as monitor your pet’s response to treatment. A blood chemistry panel is usually performed to screen for potential problems and risks before anesthesia is administered.

Fecal Examination 

Fecal examination detects the presence of intestinal parasites, including roundworm, hookworm, whipworm, tapeworm, and giardia. A fecal examination is recommended as part of your pet’s wellness examination and is sent to our veterinary laboratory. Results are returned usually within 24 hours.

Urinalysis (UA)

Laboratory or in-house testing of your pet’s urine can help detect the presence of specific substances that normally do not appear in urine, including protein, sugar, white blood cells, or blood. Urinalysis can be helpful in diagnosing urinary tract infections, diabetes, dehydration, kidney problems, and other medical conditions. Your doctor may recommend bringing in a urine sample prior to an appointment.
