In House Vet Laboratory
Diagnostic lab work plays an important part in pre-operative workup prior to anesthesia, as well as understanding and treating your pets when they are ill. It also provides valuable information in healthy animals to promote early detection of disease. McLean Animal Hospital is able to offer many of these tests in our in-house laboratory.
Diagnostic testing for pets includes complete blood count, chemistry analysis of the liver and kidneys, electrolyte levels, thyroid levels and much more. Certain tests are submitted to a local veterinary laboratory for testing. This laboratory also reads out cytology, histopathology, and additional testing when needed.
