About Our In-House Laboratory

Other in-hospital testing we offer includes intestinal parasite screens, blood parasite screens (including heartworm), and urinalysis evaluation. We can often obtain in-hospital test results within an hour, so our veterinarians to promptly address and evaluate your pet’s problems.
Cat and Dog X-Rays
Radiographs, or X-rays, are a diagnostic tool that can help us assess the size or shape of the internal organs. They also allow us to evaluate the bones for fractures, arthritis, or other skeletal problems. Having digital X-ray equipment allows us to take measurements and even email the X-ray images to specialists for consultation.
With the addition of dental radiography at our hospital, we are also able to evaluate the roots of the teeth, allowing us to locate infections at the roots as well as broken roots.
