At Veazie Veterinary Clinic, we want to provide you with the most comprehensive diagnostic testing available. These services help us better understand your pet’s health. We are able to run a large variety of tests here in the hospital, for those times when knowing right away is the best option.
For more involved or specialized diagnostics we work with laboratories and universities across the country. This enables us to run just about any test we can think of.
In House Laboratory Services
Our in house laboratory is one of our greatest and most used assets. We have the capability to run blood work and have results in a matter of minutes due to our partnership with Idexx Labs and the equipment they provide. We can diagnose:
- Kidney Disease
- Liver Disease
- Complete Blood Counts (CBC)
- Lyme Disease
- Feline Leukemia
- Heartworm Disease
Having such a convenient laboratory in house also allows us to run pre-operative blood profiles to screen for potential problems before an anesthetic is given. some of our non-blood tests that we run include:
- Fecal Tests
- Skin Scrapings
- Ear Cytologies
- Fine Needle Aspirates of Lumps
Outside (Reference) Laboratory Services
We also utilize a number of outside laboratories for specific tests. Some tests that we do send out include:
- Histologies (Biopsies)
- Thyroid Profiles
- Bladder Stone Analyses
- In-depth Blood Chemistries
Results from these tests are usually back within a few days, although some results can take up to 2 weeks or longer depending on the test being run.
Telemedicine gives us the ability to consult with veterinary specialists across the country via the internet. Images we can send include:
- Radiographs (x-rays)
- Endoscopic views
We can send images to a specialist and get a response often later that same day. Quick answers allow for prompt treatment in critical cases.
