Pet Diagnostic Tests Result in Quicker Treatment
In critical or emergency situations, quickly getting the results of diagnostic tests is crucial. Mendon Village Animal Hospital has its own in-house laboratory, making it possible to perform many tests and obtain the results with minimal waiting. The ability to complete accurate diagnostic tests in our hospital gives us an important advantage. Appropriate therapy for your pet can begin right away. Prompt treatment makes a great difference in how quickly your pet responds and increases the likelihood of a complete recovery.
Our on-site laboratory allows us to quickly test blood, urine, and fecal samples. In addition to giving us fast results, our lab is more convenient for you. If your pet is scheduled for surgery, you may bring him or her in that same day for pre-operative blood work instead of making a separate trip. Having the results of tests in minutes instead of hours saves stress on you and your pet.
Laboratory Tests Benefit Your Pet
Blood, urine, and fecal tests are a major part of determining the health of your pet. Laboratory testing provides you with peace of mind and gives us important physiological information. Performed at regular intervals as part of a wellness examination, we use some of these tests to establish normal baselines for your pet:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Lyme disease
- Blood chemistry panel
- Thyroid function
- Feline leukemia (FelV)
- Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)
