We know just how frustrating it can be to have to wait for answers when it comes to your pet’s health. That’s why we were determined to include in-house laboratory testing capabilities when creating Cobblestone Animal Hospital. Instead of sending samples out for analysis, we offer those services right here. It means that we can diagnose your pet quickly and begin any necessary treatments as soon as possible. We’ve also made sure that these tests are affordable for our clients to ensure that their pets can receive comprehensive care without breaking the bank.
If your pet is scheduled to undergo a procedure that requires general anesthesia, we will perform a few of these tests to ensure that they won’t be harmed by being put under. This is common for routine dental cleanings and most other surgeries.
As mentioned above, one of the most important uses of laboratory tests is to identify infections and medical conditions. Some conditions can fly under the radar for months or even years before suddenly becoming life-threatening for your pet. Heartworms, stomach parasites, kidney problems and more can jeopardize your pet’s wellbeing. With appropriate and regular testing, we can tackle these problems early on to save your pet some major discomfort and keep costs low for you.
