Laboratory Services

Laboratory testing is essential in helping us determine your pet’s overall systemic health without the need for invasive and expensive procedures. In fact, for a large percentage of pets, abnormalities will show up on labs prior to a patient being symptomatic. This is why we recommend that we regularly test your pet during wellness exams or when we suspect your pet may have a health issue. Think of lab work in animals in human terms. When most cats are 7 years of age or older and dogs are 5 years of age or older, they are equivalent to us in our 40’s and 50’s. It is at this stage in our life, and in the lives of our pets that laboratory values can give us valuable information to stave off, pre-treat, or catch chronic illnesses, diseases, etc. prior to it affecting the quality of life of our furry loved ones.

BCVH has the ability to do this. We have a full-service in-house diagnostic lab that allows us to perform chemistry profiles, complete blood cell counts, electrolyte level measurements, urinalysis tests and cytology evaluations. With our laboratory, we have the ability to analyze how well your pet’s internal organs and processes are functioning immediately. Because sometimes your pet may need a very specialized test, or, a combination test, we also have the ability to send your patient’s bloodwork to our outside laboratories for additional testing. We tailor our laboratory work-up to the individual needs of our patients.

Providing compassion, care, and kindness to pets and their people.
