Our In-House Laboratory Services for Sick and Healthy Pets

When your pet falls ill, time is of the essence. Our fully equipped in-house laboratory allows us to conduct comprehensive blood work on-site, offering results within minutes. This rapid turnaround is crucial for starting treatment without delay, setting your pet on the path to treatment and a smooth recovery.

Additionally, our hospital can perform routine health testing to screen for diseases, parasites, and infections. Each year, we recommend seeing your dog or cat for a full examination and lab work to check for underlying problems. This becomes especially critical for senior pets (pets age 7 and up), who are more prone to disease.

Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work

Before any procedure requiring anesthesia, we perform thorough pre-anesthetic blood tests to significantly reduce the risk of anesthetic complications. This preventive measure is a testament to our commitment to your pet's safety and health.

Tech In Lab

Digital Radiography (X-rays)

Our digital X-ray technology provides superior-quality images, enhancing our ability to diagnose various conditions with greater accuracy. Along with offering clearer insights into various organ systems, it minimizes your pet's exposure to radiation. For complex cases, we can swiftly send digital X-rays to radiologists or specialists for further evaluation.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound technology is a powerful tool in veterinary medicine, offering a non-invasive way to examine your pet's internal organs, tissues, and other structures. Unlike X-rays, ultrasound can detect conditions that might remain hidden otherwise. Dr. Prince, having completed the WAVE Small Animal Soft Tissue Immersion Program, brings certified expertise in Small Animal Abdominal Ultrasound to our clinic, ensuring your pet benefits from the latest in diagnostic advancements.
