Does your current vet have an animal in-house diagnostics laboratory for pets? Here at Davis Animal Hospital, we’re proud to now feature such a thing at our office.
Laboratory testing can be a really valuable tool which is used in many applications of veterinary medicine, specifically for diagnostics. At Davis Animal Hospital, we’re always seeking to provide the highest-caliber services and medicine to our clients and the pets they bring to us. This is why we’ve added in-house diagnostic laboratory services for pets as a new way of offering even more convenience and exemplary care to all of our patients.
In the years that you’ve been taking care of your pets, you’ve likely discovered that quite a few essential diagnostic tests were only done by outside laboratories. You get used to most vets having to send lab test work out and then wait on the results, which meant you and your pet had to wait too. However, in some cases, you might have noticed a few tests being performed internally. Thanks to our in-house diagnostics laboratory for pets, we’re one of those providers now. Since our veterinarians and staff have access to precision test results we obtain in our very own in- house veterinary laboratory, they get the information they can use to serve your pets better and faster. It’s great for you, too, since you’ll have more testing options and faster news for better decisions for the care of your pets.
Our animal in-house diagnostic laboratory lets us advance the level of care and service we offer. Time is often crucial when trying to diagnose a pet accurately. Since we have these tools in house, we’re able to give you specific and accurate answers that you normally have to wait for anxiously, but fortunately, now it won’t take as long. That gives you peace of mind faster and also means less pain and suffering for your four-legged family members.
There are many kinds of animal laboratory testing that we can run. They include but are not limited to complete blood counts, urinalysis, cytology, FeLV/FIV screening, tick-borne and heartworm disease screening, and serum chemistry.
Our animal in-house diagnostics laboratory also lets us have access to other diagnostic tools, including sonography services, radiology services, X-rays, and an ultrasound machine. We can use these painless and non-invasive tools in order to do things like locating abnormalities in many different systems of your pets, including the urinary, reproductive, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, cardiovascular, and skeletal systems.
On the rare occasion that we need a test that our animal in-house diagnostic laboratory can’t handle, we’re more than willing to send it out. We never do anything that would compromise the care and health of your pets.
We’re happy and even eager to answer any and all questions that you might have about the animal in-house diagnostic laboratory services we have. Make sure that you ask any of our skilled professionals the next time you come in how our animal in-house diagnostics laboratory services can benefit you and your pets. Or, just call us or even contact us through our website, and we’ll still happily answer all of your questions.
