Diagnostic testing can identify problems your pet may be experiencing so that proper treatment can begin before a condition worsens.
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.
We recommend regular tests to determine your pet's health. If any concerns or conditions are found, we will help you decide on proper treatment.
Most laboratory work is done through routine wellness exams as directed by our doctors. For emergencies or unscheduled visits, our diagnostic lab will run various tests to determine the best treatment for your pet. If your pet is showing irregular behavior, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Our doctors will determine which laboratory services are appropriate during your exam.
To ensure a proper diagnosis, we start with a history and comprehensive physical exam. Based on the information gathered, we may recommend further testing. This may include blood work, urinalysis, parasite screening, cytology or other, more specific tests.
