In-House Veterinary Laboratory

Microscope

Stone Ridge Veterinary Medical Center offers a modern, in-house veterinary laboratory with the latest testing technology and equipment. Lab tests provide important diagnostic testing for both well and sick pets. Results serve to detect problems early and establish a healthy baseline, should your pet become ill in the future. Lab work is especially important in senior pet care, for early and accurate diagnosis of age-related diseases.

Laboratory Services

Tests like these and others are reliable and important indicators of health. In a healthy pet, laboratory tests performed during a wellness exam establish baseline values for your pet. Our most common laboratory tests include:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Chemistry panel
  • Urinalysis
  • Fecal exams
  • Heartworm
  • Feline leukemia and FIV testing
  • Pancreatitis testing
  • Thyroid testing
  • Giardia testing

Additionally, when your pet is scheduled for surgery, we use pre-surgical screening tests to determine the risk of complications while the patient is under general anesthesia. This allows us to adjust your pet’s anesthesia protocol, if necessary.
