“After getting an idea of what was going on with my cat, they took her to the back for an initial examination while I waited, and then they did some bloodwork to gather more information. They were upfront with all of the costs and very helpful in describing exactly what was going on… I am grateful that I was able to get in when I did and that the care I received was top-notch.”
Pet Laboratory FAQs
What is a veterinary laboratory?
A veterinary laboratory identifies diseases or conditions, detects parasites, measures organ functions, and performs other tests as needed. By enabling veterinarians to diagnose medical issues quickly and accurately, the lab helps pets to live longer, healthier lives.

Does pet insurance cover laboratory testing?
Many times, pet insurance will cover a portion of the bill at a veterinary hospital. It is important to be aware of any services not covered by your insurance so that you can make an informed decision about the level of care for your pet. Your pet's insurance may or may not cover laboratory testing at our hospital, depending on your specific provider. Researching and understanding what services your insurance covers can help ensure that your pet receives the best possible treatment available.
What do veterinary pathologists do?
Veterinary pathologists are veterinarians that specialize in disease diagnosis. They use cutting-edge laboratory techniques to examine animal tissues and fluids for clues as to the cause of an illness or injury. This information helps them interpret test results, diagnose a condition, and make medical recommendations for treatment. Veterinary pathologists also work with other veterinary specialists, such as cardiologists, neurologists, and oncologists, to provide a complete picture of an animal's health. They play a crucial role in helping ensure the well-being of animals worldwide by studying disease processes, developing diagnostics tests, and researching new treatments.
