In-House Lab

In-House Laboratory

Life Care Animal Hospital has the capability to perform various laboratory tests on-site when time is of the essence. This means your pet can get a diagnosis and begin needed treatment sooner.

Testing available in the hospital includes:

Chemistry Panels: This includes liver and kidney values, glucose, and electrolytes

Complete Blood Cell Counts: This evaluates red and white blood cells

Fecal Testing

Heartworm and Tick Disease Testing: This includes tests for Lyme’s disease, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis

Urinalysis

 Viral screenings:

  • Feline leukemia and FIV in cats
  • Parvovirus in dogs

While we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, we partner with Antech laboratories for less urgent laboratory tests. We also can run specialized lab work as needed utilizing the best labs in the country to meet your pet’s needs.
