In-House Laboratory

  • In-House Laboratory

Sheabel Veterinary Hospital’s in-house laboratory provides us with point-of-care diagnostic abilities during wellness exams and while treating sick or injured pets. It also allows us to properly evaluate every surgery patient prior to anesthesia.

Our in-house laboratory can conduct blood work, including complete blood counts and chemistry panels, and with fecal testing, we can look for intestinal parasites like heartworm, hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm. Urinalysis can help detect kidney problems, liver problems, infections, and diabetes.

Because our laboratory is within our veterinary hospital, we get results from your pet’s tests fast. If treatment is needed, we can start that treatment quickly, giving your pet a better chance at recovery.
