Our clinic understands the importance of In-House laboratory testing which is essential to your pet's health. We have updated technology which helps allocate deviations in blood cells, platelets and enzymes. This is crucial for diagnostics, treatments and monitoring your pets medical condition.
For our clients convenience, we offer the following In-House laboratory testing:
- Blood Test : A laboratory analysis is performed on a blood sample (preferably a fresh sample) drawn from the pet's cephalic vein, from the jugular or the saphenous vein. Their are multiple tests that can be performed with one sample such as the evaluation of the white blood cells, red blood cells, liver values, kidney values, electrolytes etc. Thanks to our updated technology, these tests are grouped together in one or multiple panels such as CDP, HM5, Liver Panel, Kidney Panel etc.
- Digital Radiography : A form of 2D imaging, where digital sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.
- Fecal Analysis : Also known as stool analysis, involves the collection and analysis of fecal matter to diagnose (under the microscope) the presence or absence of intestinal parasites and or foreign objects.
- Urinalysis : The test of urine used to detect and manage a wide range of medical conditions such as blockage, (primarily caused by crystals) diabetes, urinary tract infections, (UTI) and kidney disease.
- Cytology : The study of cells in terms of their structure, function and chemistry.
- Ear Culture : The culture of foreign matter found in the ear such as ear mites, bacteria, fungus etc. This sample is then examined under the microscope with or without staining depending on the tests performed.
