Full, In-House Animal Laboratory
At East Lawn Animal Hospital, our in-house lab provides important fecal exams, heartworm tests, and more. Stool samples help us diagnose any internal parasites your pet may be suffering from.
Such parasites can sap your pet’s energy and strength and could cause death in extreme cases or young animals. Heartworms are parasites spread by mosquitoes that cause severe heart, lung, and liver diseases. We treat and prevent these parasites with prophylactic medications.
State-of-the-Art Blood Tests
We can easily test your pet’s blood for liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and hormonal imbalances that affect dogs and cats as they age. These tests can be completed in our in-house lab in just minutes using the IDEXX in-house blood analyzers. We also partner with IDEXX Reference Veterinary Labs and FedEx to get results of more complex tests in just 24 hours. This equipment is another way that we show our commitment to the health and well-being of your pet.
