At St. Francis Veterinary Clinic, we are equipped with in-house laboratory services. Having an in-house laboratory allows us to receive test results quickly, which ensures better patient care.
Laboratory services provide detailed results about what’s occurring in you pet's body, which can be critical in urgent care situations. In-house lab services offer greater safety, providing important information about animals before they receive anesthesia for surgery or other procedures. Information from in-house lab results can be especially important in the care of older animals. It can save time both for veterinarians and for pet owners.
In-house laboratory services provide timely information on blood tests, such as blood counts, blood chemistry levels, and blood gases. It can help your vet determine problems with kidney function, liver function, diabetes, heart problems, anemia, lung function, thyroid disorders and generalized infections. These tests, along with other diagnostic measures, can provide a full picture of your pet's condition that can lead to more accurate and effective care. Fast and convenient test results means your veterinarian can provide immediate treatment of health problems, so your pet can enjoy better health and a longer life.
