At Signature Veterinary Services, we’re proud to provide a full range of diagnostic capabilities to our pet patients in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. In addition to radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound, we also provide complete laboratory testing, including blood, urine, and fecal analyses.
Convenient Diagnostics: Testing Performed On-Site
We offer a variety of diagnostic panels for dogs and cats. Collecting samples from our patients in the comfort of their homes, or right outside the home on our mobile clinic, provides a convenient solution for routine and specialized testing. Our mobile clinic is equipped with a microscope to facilitate testing of skin issues as well as lumps and bumps.
Signature Veterinary Services partners with a state-of-the-art reference laboratory. Following a collection of your pet’s samples, our team will promptly submit them to our local laboratory for a complete analysis. We promise expedient, accurate results with a detailed report and treatment plan.
What Are Indications for Laboratory Testing in Dogs and Cats?
In our quest to ensure the optimal health of pets, diagnostic tests, such as blood panels, prove to be necessary and useful for a variety of reasons, including:
In warm, humid climates, dogs are at an increased risk of contracting heartworm from mosquito bites. Pets can easily be protected from this life-threatening parasite with preventive medications. Before administering heartworm preventive to a dog, however, it’s essential that our veterinarian screens for the parasite because administering preventive to a heartworm positive dog can be fatal. This screening is accomplished through annual blood testing.
Depending on your pet’s medical history, condition, breed, and age, routine blood tests might be recommended during regular wellness exams. Blood tests can help our veterinarians establish a baseline of your pet’s general health and facilitate early detection of developing conditions and diseases.
Pets with very different health problems can exhibit similar symptoms. Diagnostic testing is a useful tool for identifying and monitoring abnormalities as well as formulating an appropriate treatment plan.
