Our veterinarians have invested in the most advanced in-clinic diagnostic laboratory available in veterinary medicine for the Animal Hospital of Orange Grove. Our diagnostic laboratory allows our doctors to run blood work for pets, and get results within minutes to begin treatment as necessary. Our analyzers provide blood chemistry results, complete blood counts (CBCs), electrolyte levels, urinalysis, and thyroid values within half an hour, so you can get results while you wait.
Blood work is important for pets prior to any surgery, to determine if they may have an underlying issue that cannot be seen on physical examination. These values are also important for sick animals that simply are not their usual playful selves to insure they are as healthy on the inside as they are on the outside. Finally, blood work is an important tool to help our doctors find potential issues early, when treatment can be more affective. Call the compassionate staff at the Animal Hospital of Orange Grove at 228-832-6360 to schedule an appointment for your furry family member.
