Cahill Veterinary Hospital offers a wide variety of laboratory services. Our facility is equipped with an in-house laboratory capable of running a range of diagnostic blood tests with immediate results. In addition to our in-house services, we also work with external laboratories whenever necessary to cover even more options for diagnostic testing.
Blood testing is vital in both diagnosing medical conditions and preventing such conditions from advancing. Annual testing for heartworm and biannual intestinal parasite testing ensures that you treat any potential infections at the first onset, rather than when they have advanced to the point of further complications.
Pre-surgical blood work is done prior to an anesthetic procedure and our surgeon will review the results before your pet’s procedure is done, to ensure that your pet is at the optimum level of safety while under sedation. Senior wellness blood screening and a wide variety of diagnostic panels are also available to clients. These panels allow us to check such crucial aspects as a pet’s thyroid level, kidney, liver values, and blood count. We will always explain the recommended testing for your pet at the time of the appointment.
