Our in-house laboratory greatly expands our capabilities:
It allows us to perform pre-anesthetic testing the same day as surgery. This gives us the most accurate and up to date results and saves our clients from having to make an additional visit for a blood draw several days prior to surgery.
It allows us to quickly diagnose illness and disease while the owner waits. With this information in hand we can initiate treatments earlier and achieve a more positive outcome.
Most importantly, the in-house laboratory allows us to respond rapidly and appropriately to critical or emergency cases. Patients who are unstable or changing rapidly don't have the time to wait for blood to be sent to a distant lab. We can rapidly diagnose disease and track our progress toward recovery without ever leaving our patients' side.
