In House Laboratory

When your pet is suffering from poor health, you want to know what is going on and how you can help to resolve it as quickly as possible.  Dr. Wood’s thorough medical examinations can help uncover many important health indicators that can aid in resolving non-optimal conditions, but sometimes even more information is needed.  Laboratory testing can greatly aid in the fast and accurate diagnosis and treatment of your pet.  Some of the common veterinary tests include:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • Skin scrapes
  • Virus tests (for Parvovirus, Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)
  • Heartworm disease tests
  • Fecal tests (for hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms and roundworms)
  • Ear cytology
  • Mass cytology
  • Skin cytology
  • Complete blood counts
  • Chemistries
  • Blood gases
  • Pancreatitis testing
  • And much more.

When it is determined that laboratory testing is necessary in order to help ascertain what is going on with your pet, the last thing you want to do is wait days or even weeks for the test results.  Five Valleys Vet Clinic is proud to provide our clients with quick diagnoses using our brand-new, state-of-the-art in-house laboratory.
