In-house Diagnostics

We're proud to offer a complete in-house diagnostic laboratory and digital radiography that allows our veterinarians to get a diagnosis and treat our patients quickly.

When your fur baby is not feeling well, we have a wide range of diagnostic equipment in our hospital to find the cause of the problem, granting us the ability to offer more effective and efficient treatment to help your best friend feel better faster.

Our in-house diagnostic laboratory also provides baseline results that help us monitor your pet’s health over the course of their lifetime. At each wellness visit, we recommend routine diagnostic testing to evaluate your pet’s organ function and to track changes over time, potentially halting any disease process in its tracks. Without routine testing, we may miss a treatable illness until it has progressed too far. By being proactive, we can help ensure many more years with your beloved companion.
