veterinary diagnostics are so important. These
invaluable tools allow us to look below the surface

inside your pet’s body so that we can quickly and
accurately diagnose and treat the problem. The
sooner we can get to the bottom of what may be
ailing your pet, the better the chances of a positive

ongoing health of our patients. Whether it’s a
simple blood test or something more complex
and in-depth, such as an x-ray or ultrasound image, we’re fully prepared and well equipped to get to the bottom of whatever may be ailing your pet so we can address the problem in a timely manner. With many illnesses, time is of the essence. Our facility features an in-house laboratory, which aids in the fast and accurate retrieval of test results.

We perform the following routine and advanced diagnostic tests in-house for our patients:
Testing for Infectious Disease
