Our pet hospital operates state-of-the-art veterinary laboratory and radiology equipment in-house.

This means your pet receives the immediate medical attention they deserve, and there is no waiting for third-party test results.

Laboratory Services

We conduct a wide range of lab services to better serve all of your pet’s needs. Our laboratory equipment utilizes the latest technology and our qualified technicians are on hand as well as on-call for emergencies. Your pet’s lab test can be conducted on-site at our clinic.

The most common lab tests your pet may need are for diagnostic purposes. If your pet has an illness, disease or parasite, we can detect it and determine the specific type. We also perform toxicology tests and analyze biopsies. This allows us to provide your pet with the best treatment plan quickly and accurately.

Diagnostic Labs:

  • Bacteriology (bacterial infection)
  • Virology (viral infection)
  • Parasitology (parasites)
  • Toxicology (chemicals or poisons)
  • Biopsies
