The Power of Our In-House Pet Laboratory

Our in-house lab offers extensive tests, including serum chemistry, which reveals intricate details of your pet’s blood chemistry for early disease detection. We also conduct hematology tests to analyze blood cells, aiding in diagnosing and monitoring various conditions. Our serology tests detect antibodies to identify infections and immune system responses, while urinalysis provides insights into kidney function and detects urinary tract issues. Additionally, our lab offers parasite testing, allowing us to identify and promptly treat internal and external parasites.

Benefits for Your Beloved Pet

Choosing Palo Duro Animal Hospital and our in-house laboratory services means more than just reliable diagnostics; it means giving your pet the best chance at a healthy, happy life.
