In our laboratory, we are able to carefully conduct diagnostic testing, if your pet requires it, at times of emergency and illness, or during a preventive wellness exam.

• CBC (Complete Blood Counts)

• FELV/FIV testing
• Electrolyte evaluation
• Cytology of skin and ear samples
• Heartworm testing

Our caring veterinarian team are prepared to quickly and effectively take appropriate care for your pet. That’s why maintaining an in-house laboratory is one of our top priorities. The ability to analyze blood tests and perform other emergency diagnostic tests on-site can mean the difference in treating your pet right away or delaying treatment for hours or even days. Also, pets with ongoing health problems may need blood work done regularly in order to monitor the success of their treatment plan and to measure overall wellness.
We also use the services of larger commercial and University laboratories for tests that cannot be run in our Hospital. Through these outside laboratories we are able to screen for endocrine, hormonal, GI, and other diseases that may not be apparent on routine blood tests. We can send samples to tissues and fluids to Pathologists for analysis. These outside laboratory resources allow us to further diagnose and treat your pet.
Laboratory results also helps us avoid invasive procedures. Analyzing the results of multiple tests gives Collar City Animal Hospital the advantage to make a clear diagnosis and treat the problem with the safest and most efficient methods.
