Our in-house laboratory allows most screening tests to be completed within a very short period of time. Routine heartworm testing, feline leukemia and AIDs testing, urinalysis, complete blood counts, pre-surgical screenings and blood chemistry profiles are among the many tests where results are available very quickly and can help us keep your pet healthy. We also have access to a full outside laboratory when more advanced diagnostic testing is required.
A urinalysis is a common part of routine health screening. A urinalysis evaluates a urine sample for evidence of disease, many of which show in the urine prior to any outward symptoms. Common causes of abnormalities in urinalysis can stem from urinary tract or kidney infections, stones, kidney failure, screening for chronic disease such as diabetes and high blood pressure. It is often combined with blood tests to investigate findings of a urine sample and get a definitive diagnosis.
