Laboratory Testing – In-House Pet Diagnosis & Results
Laboratory analysis becomes indispensible in cases where there is a requirement of accurate and effective determination of a disease and/or health condition. Pets suffer from a wide range of diseases and infections due to their habitat. Thus, lab testing significantly helps in diagnosing and treating health problems. Laboratory testing is the most basic step when it comes to identifying the locale and type of pet infection or disease.
We, at Hwy 401 Warden Pet Hospital, have at our disposal lab testing equipment which can effectively diagnose pet health conditions. Given below are some health complications which our reliable and experienced clinical team can diagnose:
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Hormonal Problems
- Cancerous/Tumour growth
- Injuries & Bone Deformation
We have an in-house laboratory testing facility where we undertake detailed analysis of your pet’s anaesthetic safety. Generally, animals react strongly to anaesthesia and hence it is a serious concern. In order to be safe, we simply perform a blood test to make sure your pet’s kidney and liver don’t function abnormally after anesthesia. We proceed with anesthesia only if the test results indicate that anesthesia use on your pet is safe.
Clinical pathology actually comes under laboratory testing and is used to evaluate the blood, body fluids or tissue fragments. This is done to identify the existence of any disease, its progression or the general state of organs and various bodily systems. Common lab tests for pets include:
- Blood counts
- Blood chemistries
- Blood clotting time
- Faecal tests
- Biopsy examination
At Hwy 401 Warden Pet Hospital Scarborough, we have dependable in-house laboratory that makes it easy for our vets to carry out diagnostic tests to design a rapid and accurate treatment plan for your pet. This facility is extremely useful for extremely ill animals and for those that require emergency medical treatment.
Blood Tests for Senior Pets
For those pets who have entered their senior years, a blood test is a crucial preventative strategy. Rarely do pet owners know, but something as a simple as a blood test can tell us about a lot of anomalies present in the pet’s body. These anomalies can go undetected in a physical examination, but often get effectively diagnosed in blood test. Most of the common diseases found in older pets are either 100% preventable or easily manageable provided they are diagnosed early.
