In-House Laboratory Services
Thanks to the in-house lab at Colonial Manor Animal Hospital, we can perform several tests in no time and give you the results quickly. Some of the in-house lab services we provide at Colonial Manor Animal Hospital include:
- Urinalysis: These tests give us insight on the health of your pet's urinary system and kidneys.
- Stool testing: Through stool analysis, we can detect parasites like roundworm, hookworm, and giardia.
- Heartworm testing: This test allows us to quickly detect heartworm via blood samples so we can provide treatment right away.
- Total blood count and serum chemistries: Measuring red and white blood cell count as well as platelet count helps us spot deficiencies, infections, and anemia in your pet.
Since early detection is a key to treating many illnesses and conditions in pets, our quick in-house lab services are very helpful.
Digital radiology is a quicker and safer alternative to traditional X-rays, making it a popular choice for veterinary care. Our team uses digital radiology to quickly figure out if there's a foreign object in your pet, check for fractures and dislocations, check on internal organ health, and get a good look at your pet's teeth to assess its dental health.
With video endoscopy, our veterinary team can get a closer look at the parts of your pet that are hard to see. Video endoscopy is commonly used to examine internal organs, the digestive tract, and other internal, hard-to-reach spots.
Diagnostic ultrasounds allow us to see the things that we can't see with digital radiology. This gives us real-time photos of your pet’s system, including soft tissue and circulation. This is a helpful tool for diagnosing problems that X-rays can't detect.
