Diagnostic lab work is an important part of pre-operative workup prior to anesthesia, as well as understanding and treating your pets when they are ill. It also provides valuable information in healthy animals to promote early detection of disease. We are able to offer many of these tests in our in-house laboratory.
Diagnostic testing for pets includes complete blood count, chemistry analysis of the liver and kidneys, electrolyte levels, thyroid levels and much more. Certain tests are submitted to a local veterinary laboratory for testing. This laboratory also reads out cytology, histopathology, and additional testing when needed.
Every pet has different requirements from their vaccines, depending on factors like age, health status and life style. For example, indoor only cats are not at risk for as many diseases as outdoor cats. We will customize the vaccine protocol for your pet’s specific needs.

Companion Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared modality that reduces inflammation and that results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is an effective, safe, painless and fast treatment for acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-operative pain.
Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.
Radiographs are an important diagnostic tool in the diagnosis of your pet when it is not feeling well.
Pet Eye Care
Both dogs and cats may be subject to eye problems at any time during their lives. These problems may range from simple irritation to permanent damage and blindness and may be caused by a wide variety of diseases.
Initial ophthalmoscopic evaluation during a patient’s exam is the starting point. More specialized tests are available and sometimes necessary to obtain a diagnosis. These include stains to detect corneal injury, tear productions tests, and tonometry to check eye pressures.
Patients with a history of other systemic diseases are at a higher risk of developing secondary diseases of the eye. Examples include glaucoma and cataracts in dogs with diabetes and retinal diseases in cats with hypertension due to heart or kidney disease. Problems with lack of tear production may be associated with certain breeds of dogs.
