Laboratory Testing

Lab screening (or diagnostic testing) includes blood testing, urinalysis, and fecal testing. Lab screenings can be used to both diagnose symptoms of illness in pets and used as a preventative health measure to analyze potential issues your pet may be developing.

 

Blood, urine, and fecal tests are commonly used for pets suffering from vomiting, diarrhea, fever, appetite loss, pale gums, general lethargy, and weakness.
