• Preventative blood screening- Too often, aging pets fall victim to a disease that could have been prevented had the proper blood testing been done on a regular basis. Pets can age up to 7 times faster than people; because of this, dramatic health changes can occur in a very short amount of time. Furthermore your pet may not show the signs of an early disease, but an annual blood screening may be able to pick up slight chemical changes in the body. In most cases, an early diagnosis & treatment can help your pet live a longer and healthier life.
• Pre-Anesthesia Blood screening- Blood testing will provide our veterinarians with an in-depth look at your pet's internal organ functions. It is extremely important to make sure your pet's organs are normal prior to being anesthetized. This will greatly reduce any anesthetic risk during surgery & sedation.
• Tests sent to reference laboratory- Sometimes a patient may need a special test that is not done on-site. In those cases, we will collect the appropriate sample and send it to our Reference lab. They have some of the best pathologists in the country analyzing your pet's samples. Most results are back within 24 hours. Cases that require cytology, culture, or histopathology may take a few days. Once the results are reviewed, you will receive a call from our staff.
