The Avenue Veterinary Clinic is equipped with an in-house laboratory that allows our veterinarians to quickly perform many of the diagnostic tests to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis. This is especially important in very ill animals and those requiring immediate or emergency treatment. Our in-house laboratory can provide results within minutes.
Some of the conditions that may be diagnosed with in house testing are kidney and liver disease, pancreatitis, diabetes, hormonal problems, infections, parasitism, anemia and certain cancers determinable by fine needle aspirates.
Progesterone testing is preformed in house with results available within 15 minutes.
We can perform screening blood tests which are important as an ongoing preventative strategy in our senior patients as part of a senior wellness program.
Some more specialised tests may need to be performed by an external veterinary laboratory. We are happy to discuss if you have any questions or if your pet need any type of pathology test.
