Byron Animal Clinic offers both on-site laboratory tests as well as referral laboratory testing.
On-site testing allows us to get quick answers for urgent or emergent cases.
Referral testing has a slight delay but is often more accurate and advanced than on-site testing.
Health screening tests are essential in keeping your pet happy and healthy. These tests allow us the chance to catch health problems early and gives us a better chance at treating them proactively.
For dogs, there is often a seasonal discount if you package your dogs health screening or Wellness Testing with the 4Dx test which tests for Heartworm Disease, Lyme Disease, Erhlichiosis, and Anaplasmosis. This happens in the spring and can result in substantial savings.
For cats, we have negotiated some special prices from our lab on your behalf. For years, dogs owners got discounts but cats did not. We asked our lab to fix this and they agreed.
Screening tests can include:
- CBC and Biochemical Profile
- Blood films
- Special blood tests for heart disease or pancreatitis
- Hormonal tests for thyroid or adrenal conditions
- Cytology of body fluids, skin scrapings, fine needle biopsies, etc
- Fecal testing
- Genomic Cancer Screening
Health screening can also involve diagnostic imaging like x-rays, dental x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, CT scans, MRI, and more. Byron Animal Clinic offers some of these but can refer your pet for any we do not offer on-site. Please continue searching our site for more details.
