Pet Laboratory Services

At Lonsdale Pet Hospital, we understand the pivotal role that laboratory services play in the health and well-being of our beloved animal companions. These services serve as the foundation for accurate diagnosis and the delivery of the best possible care by our experienced veterinarians.

The Significance of Laboratory Services

Laboratory services encompass a broad range of diagnostic tests and procedures designed to gather crucial information about a pet’s health. These tests include blood analysis, urine examinations, fecal studies, and more. The results obtained from these tests empower our veterinarians to identify underlying health conditions, track the progress of ongoing treatments, and make informed decisions regarding a pet’s care.

Key Laboratory Services We Offer

Our advanced blood tests are instrumental in detecting various conditions, including anemia, infections, organ dysfunction, and specific diseases like heartworm and diabetes.

A urinalysis provides invaluable insights into a pet's kidney function. It assists in diagnosing urinary tract infections or other related issues.

These examinations are pivotal in identifying parasites or gastrointestinal problems affecting a pet's digestive system.

Examining cells aids in identifying issues such as skin conditions, lumps, or tumors, allowing for precise treatment planning.

Identifying bacteria and other pathogens is essential in determining infections' cause, ensuring accurate treatment protocols.

Studying tissue samples is indispensable for diagnosing diseases like cancer or autoimmune disorders, enabling targeted and effective treatment.

We offer specialized allergy tests to pinpoint specific allergens affecting your pet, allowing for tailored treatment strategies.

In-House Lab Tests

In addition to our extensive range of laboratory services, we also conduct in-house tests including:

  • Skin Tests (Hair Plucks, Skin Scraping, Tape Strips, Slide Impressions, and Swab Smears): These tests aid in diagnosing various dermatological conditions.
  • Wood’s Lamp Examination: An invaluable tool in detecting certain skin conditions not visible to the naked eye.
  • Fecal Float: A specialized test for identifying parasites affecting your pet’s gastrointestinal health.
