diagnostic testing

When investigating a disease or condition we often need to run tests to get more information on what may be causing the problem. At Central we run most of our testing "in-house", which means that we have the necessary equipment to diagnose and treat your pets faster. This is also very important in emergency situations and after hours.  The following diagnostics are run in clinic:

  • Complete Blood Count
  • Serum Biochemistry Panels
  • T4 and TSH (Thyroid) Testing 
  • Bile Acids Testing 
  • Phenobarbital Level Testing 
  • Snap 4Dx Testing (Heartworm, Lyme disease, Anaplasma and Ehrlichia)
  • Snap Parvo Testing (Canine Parvovirus)
  • Snap* Combo Testing (Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)
  • Digital Radiology
  • Ultrasonography (Abdominal, Cardiac, Pregnancy or Regional)
  • Blood Pressure
  • SPO2
  • ECG
  • Blood Glucose (Curve or Spot Check)
  • Microscopic Cytology (Fecal, Skin, Blood Smear, Fine Needle Aspirate, etc.)

Certain conditions require very specific testing and specialized equipment, for these tests we refer to different laboratories depending on the test required.
