Our in-house laboratory services include the ability to deliver test results much more quickly than if we had to send them out to a 3rd party lab. When your pet is injured or sick, this allows for quick turnaround in assessing the problem and getting treatment started— and it makes your visits much more convenient.
We recommend that your pet has routine bloodwork conducted once per year, alongside a physical exam and fecal analysis. These give us a much more complete picture of your pet’s overall health.
Plus, thanks to our in-house lab, you don’t have to wait days or weeks to get results back. When your pet is unwell, we can conduct tests, analyze them, and get started on a treatment plan right away.

Also known as an x-ray, digital radiography allows our expert team to look more deeply into your pet’s overall health by producing high-resolution images of the inside of their body.
The best part about digital radiography? It’s painless, 100% safe, and requires no surgical procedure. Like in x-rays used on human patients, such a small dose of radiation is emitted that it has no effect on your pet. Plus, x-rays are a fast process that can be conducted and analyzed in the same day.
Digital radiography not only gives us a look at your pet’s bone health, it can also help us analyze the health of your pet’s organs. From the heart and lungs to abdominal organs, x-rays give us insight into how all of these organs are functioning, positioned in your pet’s body, and more.
Allergies and dermatological issues (issues relating to the skin) can make your pet extremely uncomfortable and distressed. There is a range of reasons pets experience skin conditions, from environmental factors to internal problems such as hormones, allergies, autoimmune disorders, diseases, cancers, or tumors.
When we identify a dermatological condition in your pet, we’ll identify the root cause so that we can conduct a treatment plan that will get them back to their healthy selves.
If your pet has any of the following symptoms, it could be a sign of a dermatological condition:
