In Clinic Diagnostics
Having the ability to run routine blood work in-hospital allows for faster diagnosis of many problems that may be wrong with your pet. This way your pet does not have to wait to start treatment.
Earlier diagnosis of liver or kidney disease lets the doctor start treatment faster. Doing a complete blood count shows if your pet may have an infection or is possibly anemic. Getting urinalysis results quicker means treatment for a bladder infection can be started immediately.
Also being able to perform the tests in-hospital lets us perform same-day-as-surgery preanestheic blood work before your pet undergoes anesthesia. This way we make sure the organ system used to metabolize the anesthetics are normal.
