Fast, Thorough Analysis to Better Serve Your Pet
Making the right treatment choices for your pet starts with knowing what’s happening. At Animal Hospital of Dauphin County, we have an on-site laboratory to quickly analyze tissue samples and better understand exactly what is happening to your pet. These tests are crucial to an accurate diagnosis. However, most veterinary clinics don’t have them on-site, meaning results can take days to obtain.

Tests We Can Perform
Our veterinarians use blood tests and other laboratory work to better assess your pet’s health. These blood tests give us a baseline of what is normal for your pet. Blood tests are very valuable in the early detection of diseases. Studies have shown that 25 percent of dogs and cats over the age of 10 have a treatable disease that is not causing symptoms.
Subtle changes in these tests over time may signal the presence of underlying disease. We recommend that dogs have blood testing done at seven years of age and cats at eight. Older pets may have these tests routinely repeated.
Other tests we offer include:
- Urine and fecal tests
- Cytology tests
- Virus tests
- Parasite screenings
By making regular visits to the vet and undergoing screenings and wellness exams, you can feel confident that your pet will be disease-free. With more than half a century in practice, we know what irregularities to look for and what they mean.
