Routine & Medical Laboratory Testing
Our animal hospital regularly uses in-house lab equipment to analyze blood, stool, urine, and tissue samples. Along with routine, comprehensive testing to assess your pet’s overall health, we can also perform more urgent medical tests to guide us in treating an illness or injury.
Some of our recommended routine lab tests include:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Blood chemistry
- Fecal exam
- FeLV/FIV testing (for cats)
- Heartworm testing with tick-borne vectors
- Feline ProBNP
- Dermatological testing
Sending Out Bloodwork
Best Friends Veterinary Hospital can do in-house diagnostics if your pet's levels need to be evaluated the same day. From a routine wellness standpoint, we can get more information at a discounted cost by sending your pet's samples to our reference laboratory.
