Laboratory Testing for Pets
Laboratory Testing for Pets Can Help!
You may notice that your pet hasn’t been their normal self lately; clinical signs such as weight loss, change in thirst or appetite, lethargy, or vomiting and diarrhea can all be hints that your pet may be ill. Just like humans our animals can suffer from conditions such as diabetes mellitus, thyroid disease, hormonal disorders, cancers and immune mediated diseases.
We have an in-house laboratory which allows us to provide rapid diagnosis of many different diseases. We are capable of performing: complete blood counts, biochemistry profiles, electrolytes, thyroid tests, screen for heartworm & tick-borne diseases, and full urinalysis (urine sediment, urine culture, and urine chemistry).
We perform many diagnostic tests via microscope including fecal parasite testing, aspirate cytology analysis of masses / tumors, dermatology diagnostic testing, and ear cytology.
We also use multiple out of state diagnostic labs for more specialized tests that we cannot run immediately at the clinic. Your pet can undergo extensive diagnostics through our network of outside labs, without ever having to leave Keene!
