Laboratory Testing for Pets of All Ages
Laboratory testing, including blood work or urinalysis, provides important information about overall health. For healthy pets, it allows our veterinarians to monitor function over time and identify illness early. For sick pets, it helps our staff determine the source of the illness and thereby create an effective treatment plan.
The Animal Hospital on Mt. Lookout Square has an extensive in-house laboratory that is designed to meet the needs of dogs, cats, and exotic pets of all ages. Our trained veterinarians and staff can provide you with important information about your pet’s health within minutes.
Types of laboratory testing
Our hospital offers a variety of laboratory tests for pets, including:
- Blood clotting tests
- Chemistry and electrolyte profiles
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Heartworm testing
- Internal parasite testing
- Tick-borne illness testing
For laboratory tests that require specialized equipment or processing, we partner with reputable outside laboratories. The results of these tests are usually provided within one day and help our veterinary team gain a complete picture of your pet’s health.
