Laboratory Testing

The diagnosis is not complete for a sick pet unless we run parameters to detect changes in the blood. We have a fully operational and functional lab to diagnose various ailments. Certain tests which are out of the scope of a general veterinary clinic are sent out to specialty labs in Toronto/Mississauga. 

Our Lab includes

  • Blood CBC (Complete blood count)
  • Serum Chemistry (complete and partial)
  • Microscope for cytology and cell counting
  • Urinalysis
  • Packed Cell Volume (PCV)
  • Serum Separation
  • Fecal floatation and testing
  • Blood donor matching
  • Minor Immune testing (Slide testing)
  • Snap (quick) testing - heartworm, parvivirus, Feline viral snap testing
  • Skin Scraping for fleas, lice, larvae, eggs, fungal elements. 

Our Trained staff keeps up to date on Laboratory testing through continuing education courses all year around. The laboratory equipment is calibrated daily to ensure excellent quality of results.
