One of the most important aspects in diagnosing issues in pets is diagnostic blood work. For this reason, Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital has invested in the most advanced laboratory equipment available from IDEXX Laboratories. Blood chemistries, complete blood counts (CBC), electrolytes, thyroid testing, fecal analysis and urinalysis can often tell us if your furry family member may have an issue that cannot be seen from the outside. Our blood work analyzers provide accurate results within minutes, meaning Dr. Ivy Heath can begin treatment right away if necessary.
Blood chemistries indicate how well your pet’s liver, kidney and pancreas function in your pet. A CBC can indicate your pet’s overall health, as red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are all determined, which can indicate certain infections, cancers and the blood’s ability to clot. Electrolytes indicate whether an animal is dehydrated. Finally, thyroid testing can indicate a number is diseases including Cushing’s and Addison’s disease. Urinalysis can let our doctor know if your pet has certain infections, as well as diabetes.
At Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital, we understand that you have a choice as to who provides healthcare to your pet. Our diagnostic capabilities, as well as experience and compassion, make our hospital an excellent choice for the life of your animal companion.
