LABORATORY TESTS

Our hospital maintains a full, on-site laboratory to perform key diagnostic tests right away - often without delay and without sending samples to an outside lab. This is especially important when a pet is critically ill or injured. There are more specialized tests that do need to be sent out, with results taking from one day to several days."Lilly" gets her exam
