Cat & Dog Blood Tests at Our In-House Laboratory

Laboratory diagnostic testing is essential to making sure your pet is healthy. More importantly, it also plays a crucial role in helping us detect, diagnose, and treat health problems. Animal Medical Center of Chandler has a full in-house laboratory, where we perform various diagnostic cat and dog blood tests. Having an in-house laboratory allows us to get results faster so your pet can be treated sooner. Plus, this increases their chances for a successful recovery. Some results can even be made available the same day!

Although lab testing is often necessary when a pet is ill or injured, it can also benefit healthy pets. First, lab test results for a healthy pet help us establish a wellness baseline. Second, we use this baseline to compare with future visits, so we can check for any abnormal changes that might point to illness. Additionally, we may also recommend specific tests for senior pets to check for conditions that are common in their age group. These conditions include diabetes, kidney disease, and liver disease.
