In-House Laboratory

laboratoryBlood analysis sometime is needed immediately in emergency situations, so Eastern Shore Animal Hospital has an on-site laboratory that enables us to perform diagnostic screening tests for your dog or cat. If your pet requires diagnostic testing, our laboratory allows us to evaluate his or her health if they become sick or injured. Our on-site veterinary laboratory features diagnostic testing for the following:

  • Complete Blood Counts
  • Cytology of Skin and Ear Samples
  • CBC (Complete Blood Counts)
  • Blood-Chemistry Panels
  • Urinalysis and Fecal Examinations
  • Fecal Testing for Intestinal Parasites
  • Parvo Tests
  • FELV/FIV Testing
  • Occult Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma Testing
  • Electrolyte Evaluation

In the event that your pet requires specialized testing, we turn to expert outside services. Idexx, a leader in veterinary services, provides the analytical data that we need to make careful judgments about your pet’s health and how to make improvements.
