Detecting Conditions With Laboratory Testing
Our veterinarians use sophisticated laboratory testing to make a more accurate diagnosis to determine the proper treatment that will be the most effective for your pet. Since pets cannot express what is bothering them, we rely on lab tests when we cannot see or feel the problem. Our laboratory services also help detect serious problems early on before the issue becomes severe or life-threatening.
Veterinary Laboratory Services
Laboratory testing is part of a wellness check-up, which serve alongside of vaccinations, parasite prevention, and dental procedures. These tests help us decide the best form of treatment for your pet.
The following are some common laboratory services our veterinarians use for detecting problems:
Blood tests give our veterinarians a comprehensive report about the chemical components, hormone levels, and electrolytes in the blood. Your vet can also identify the following with blood tests:
- Digestive Enzymes
- Endocrine levels
- Thyroid hormones
Blood tests are valuable diagnostic tools for treating infections and diseases.
Parasites can be detected by blood tests and fecal matter examinations. These tests help diagnose harmful internal parasites, such as heartworm, ringworm, hookworm, roundworm, giardia, coccidian, and many others.
Urinalysis helps detect a range of disorders like urinary tract infections, diabetes, bladder stones, nutritional imbalances, liver disease, and kidney disease. Our vets use this test to assess the chemical and physical properties of the urinary system.
Other specialized tests can help a veterinarian make an accurate diagnosis. These include tests for skin mites (mange), biopsy analysis of tissue samples to look for cancer, and fungal serology to determine fungal infections.
