In-House Lab

We know how important it is that our clients and patients receive test and lab results as soon as possible. That is why at Family Pet Clinic, our medical team uses the in-house laboratory to provide quick turn around time. This is particularly useful in cases of injury or illness, as well as making wellness visits, routine fecal exams, and blood work all the more convenient.

Our medical team recommends that your pet have bloodwork done at least once per year. This, in addition to the physical exam and fecal exam, gives us a clear insight into the overall health condition of your pet. Bloodwork reveals the functionality of blood chemistry levels and organ functioning, which can help us properly asses disorders that may occur. 

While other hospitals have to rely on outside labs to get test results back, Family Pet Clinic has the luxury of being fully equipped with our in house lab, allowing us to see results faster and diagnose and discuss necessary treatment options on the spot if the test results reveal any conditions. 

Below are some of the diagnostic tests performed with our in-house laboratory:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) is the most common diagnostic test that we run in our facility. The CBC gives us great insight into your pet’s health status by measuring the number of red blood cells and white blood cells from a blood sample. These results help us identify conditions such as leukemia, anemia, inflation, and other infections and diseases.
  • Blood Chemistry Panel is used as a baseline assessment of health and measure organ health and functioning. This test is particularly useful when monitoring treatment and recovery.
  • Urinalysis helps in the detection of liver disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and urinary tract infections.
  • Thyroid tests assess the output of hormones to determine if they are over/under producing the proper amounts necessary for basic bodily functions such as metabolism and energy. As pets age, this test becomes increasingly important.
  • Electrolytes Testing helps us monitor dehydration levels and overall pet health condition.
  • Fecal Exams test for the presence of intestinal parasites, as well as other issues, such as pancreatic disorders, disease, and internal bleeding.
  • Skin scrapings test for the presence of fungi on your pet’s skin.
