Health Screenings

Regular health screenings allow us to be proactive in the prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases. We recommend annual blood testing, based on the species, breed and age of your pet. Another benefit of health screenings is having a healthy baseline for comparison should your pet become sick. Health screenings also include vaccinations, which are determined based on the individual lifestyle of your pet.
 

Our facility features an in-house laboratory capable of conducting common lab tests such as:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  • Packed Cell Volume and Total Protein (PCV/TP)
  • Chemistry panels to look at liver and kidney values as well as electrolytes and glucose
  • Canine 4Dx (Ehrlichia, Lyme, Anaplasma, and Heartworm test) to look for tick borne illness
  • Feline leukemia virus and Feline immunodeficiancy virus test
  • Heartworm test
  • Fine Needle Aspirates
  • Cytology
  • Skin scrapes to check for mites
  • Ear cytology for ear infections
  • Stool Analysis
    • Normal-float to look for intestinal parasites
    • Comprehensive-float, direct smear, Giardia snap test, and Gram stain to look for intestinal parasites, Giardia, and bacterial imbalances or overgrowths
 

For more in-depth or specialized testing, we utilize an outside laboratory to perform tests such as:

  • Cytology
  • Histopathology
  • Urolith analysis (bladder stones)
  • Culture and Sensitivity (abscesses, wounds, ear infections, urine, other)
  • Fungal Cultures (ringworm)
  • Phenobarbital levels (seizure medication), various other medication levels
  • Bile acids
  • Endocrine testing
    • Thyroid levels
    • ACTH stimulation test (Cushings or Addison’s disease)
    • Glucose curves and fructosamine levels (Diabetes)
  • Urine protein: creatinine ratio (assess kidney function)
  • Fluid analysis (from thoracocentesis, abdominocentesis, etc.)
  • Allergy testing
  • Vitamins, minerals, hormones, and toxin blood levels
  • Disease titers
  • Coagulation panel (clotting times)
