Laboratory tests we suggest to keep your pet healthy

At Pets Health Veterinary Practices, we pride ourselves on providing the pets in our community with the most comprehensive care available. This includes in house laboratory testing so that your trip to the vet is as hassle-free as possible.

When you bring your pet in for their general pets health exam, we generally suggest performing some common laboratory tests to make sure they’re doing well. Though a physical examination and detailed history of behaviors from you can tell us much about your pet’s health, there are some conditions that are difficult to detect. A urinalysis is one of the most common tests we perform to check how an animal’s kidneys are functioning and to determine if they’re experiencing any issues in their urinary tract. It’s especially important in older pets, as kidney disease is one of the leading health issues in senior animals. Urine tests are non-invasive and quick with our in house laboratory testing.

If you’ve brought your pet in for a soft tissue or orthopedic surgery, we’ll do a blood test to make sure they’re in good enough health to be placed under anesthesia. This prevents scary surprises from popping up in the middle of a procedure. We may request to perform a few standard blood tests during a preventative care exam as well.

Intestinal Parasites

Fecal tests are how we make sure that your pet is free of intestinal parasites that commonly affect animals. Young kittens and puppies are very susceptible to these worms, and treatment is necessary to make sure they stay healthy. Our in house laboratory can quickly and accurately provide answers in cases where we suspect intestinal parasites.

If your pet is exhibiting any other concerning symptoms, our veterinarians may suggest running laboratory tests to rule out diseases and long term illnesses.
