At Old Town Veterinary Hospital in Murrieta, CA, we have a in-house laboratory system that allows us to check for a complete blood count (CBC), chemistry analyzer to check organ function, and clotting times as a part of diagnostics services.
What Is a Complete Blood Count?
A complete blood count (CBC) is a test that can check for the following: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and hemoglobin.
What Are Clotting Times?
Clotting times are the amount of time it takes for a blood sample to clot. This test is used to check for abnormalities in the blood's ability to clot.
An In-House Lab Gets You Results Faster
We understand that time is of the essence when your pet is severely ill, which is why we offer results within that can come more quickly than if we outsourced. We offer snap tests to help get you results quicker for conditions such as pancreatitis, parvo virus testing, heartworm testing, and a snap that allows us to check for several tick-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease.
What Is Pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis is a condition that occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed and stops functioning normally. This can cause serious complications if left untreated, so it is important to get your pet checked at the first sign of symptoms.
At our animal hospital, we are committed to helping you keep your pet healthy and happy through regular wellness exams and diagnostic testing. Our team is here for you every step of the way.
What Is Parvo Virus Testing?
Parvo virus testing is a quick and easy way to check for the presence of the parvovirus in your pet's blood. This virus can be serious, causing severe vomiting and loss of appetite, so it is important to get it diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. At our animal hospital, we offer quick and accurate parvo virus testing so you can rest assured that your pet is getting the care they need.
What Are Heartworms?
Heartworms are a type of parasitic worm that can affect the health and wellbeing of your pet. They spread through mosquito bites, causing symptoms such as coughing, fatigue, vomiting, and weight loss. Heartworm testing is an easy way to check for this condition so it can be treated as soon as possible. Our animal hospital offers comprehensive heartworm testing to ensure that your pet stays healthy and happy.
Partners with IDEXX
In addition, we have a partnership with IDEXX, a local outsource laboratory. This allows us to run some tests that are required to make an accurate diagnosis. The lab can return results back within a short period of time, and depending on the kind of the selected test, turn-around time is usually 24-48 hours.
