Our in-house laboratory includes the Idexx Lasercyte™, which evaluates white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. The Idexx Catalyst DX™ measures your pet’s blood chemistry, enzymes associated with internal organ function, and allows us to evaluate for systemic diseases. On-the-spot testing is available for infectious diseases like canine parvovirus, heartworm disease, as well as feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficieny virus. In-house diagnostics may also be used to evaluate thyroid function or your pet’s blood phenobarbital level.
We routinely perform skin scrapings, used to check for skin mites, and microscopically evaluate skin lesions and masses.
We offer in-house intestinal parasites screenings to check for internal parasites, which may cause illness in pets and, in some cases, may be spread to humans.
