There are many reasons why your pet might require diagnostics, whether blood work, urinalysis or other laboratory tests. Our fully equipped veterinary laboratory allows us to perform advanced diagnostics such as blood chemistry panels, CBC's (complete blood counts), electrolytes and blood gasses to help us determine the best treatment plan for your pet's medical condition. IMAH is dedicated to getting accurate, timely answers for you and your pet.
With our state-of-the art Idexx Vet-Lab station, our doctors receive laboratory results within 15 minutes. In critical situations, these immediate results can be shared to help you and your Veterinarian determine treatment options available for your pet's health care needs.
Our in-house laboratory also provides a full line of parasite testing, serology, and urinalysis.
IMAH uses the Idexx Laboratory and Marshfield Clinic Veterinary Laboratory as reference laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations with Board Certified Veterinary Pathologists.
We also send our histopathology requests to our referral laboratories. Histopathology is the examination of cells under a microscope. Most commonly, these cells come from masses removed from an animal surgically, and the histopath report tells our vets what kind of a mass it is, how likely the mass is to return, and in some cases a general prognosis for your pet. This test may take up to 14 days for us to receive results.
We also offer in house electrocardiograms (ECGs) and blood pressure evaluations to help us diagnose and monitor certain diseases.
