This little beauty is named Bliss, how perfect is that?!! She was out in our yard for a little fresh air and looked so pretty we had to snap a photo :) ...

Say hello to Abby, a very sweet 12 year old Westie mix. She was a brave girl for her dental cleaning and now her kisses are sweet as honey ♥ ...

Here's a pic of Tulo in his happy place, snuggled in Danielle's arms ♥ ...

Mr Merlin is so relaxed during his appointment he decided to stretch out for a belly rub and a 'catnap'. 🐾 😉 ...

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory is a vital part of your pet's care.

The ability to obtain lab results the same day is especially valuable for sick animals or those undergoing an unplanned anesthetic or surgery.  Our in-house lab allows us to perform many types of testing that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet.  Blood work is a routine part of a diagnostic work up, and helps the veterinarian provide your animal with the best treatment options and care.  We have a complete in house blood analyzer laboratory, allowing us to run blood samples and obtain results in less than an hour.  We can also perform routine urine and fecal testing in clinic.  Our Technicians are important members of the team, as they collect the samples  and perform these diagnostic tests for our veterinarians while your pet is being treated on an outpatient or hospitalized basis.  if necessary, we also courier medical samples to veterinary reference labs for more specialized tests.

Wellness testing can help catch many conditions early before they become serious illnesses.  Be sure to ask your veterinarian about which tests your pet may need during your pet's next wellness exam. 

 

 

We are able to perform many tests in hospital as they are needed for your pet's care, including

-Blood Chemistries and Completer Blood Counts

-Urine tests and Fecal examinations (testing for the presence of hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms and roundworms).

-Skin scrapes

-Snap tests for viruses (Parvovirus, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and Pancreatitis

-Ear, Skin and Mass cytology

 

We also utilize an outside veterinary reference laboratory in Langley for specialized bloodwork panels, urine and skin cultures such as:

-Bacterial and fungal cultures

-Comprehensive thyroid panels

-Tick panels

-Vaccine titers

-Cytology and histopathology
