Blood tests are an essential part of diagnosing what is ailing your pet, just as they are in human medicine. Blood tests can tell the veterinarian a myriad of things, from whether your pet is dehydrated, he/she has anemia or is suffering from cancer.
Benefits of in-house diagnostics and bloodwork
When your pet is sick, you don't want to wait days to get the results of blood tests and start his or her treatment. Neither do you want to drive all around Rochester from the vet's office to the lab and back. Our in-house diagnostic lab decreases the time and energy necessary to get your pet the blood tests he or she needs. Plus, you'll get the results much quicker than if you use an outside lab. We also believe it's easier for your pet to only deal with one technician and one visit than to have him/her visit two separate facilities.
Some tests do need to be sent out. Results are back in a week to 10 days.
Having a sick pet can be a scary thing. After all, they are part of the family. Broadway Veterinary Hospital wants to ease some of your anxiety and get your pet on the road to wellness quickly. That's why we've invested in an in-house diagnostic lab. Call us today at (507) 206-3313 to learn more about our in-house testing lab or to make an appointment for your pet.
