In-House vs. Reference Lab Testing (including benefits of both)

pet is in the clinic. We do this by using microscopes, blood machines, and
urine analyzers located in the hospital laboratory area. Examples of different
in-house tests we perform include: complete blood count, full blood chemistry
and electrolyte analysis, […]

It is important to note that ‘behavior’ is influenced by several components, including genetics, environment, and life experiences.  When diagnosing an animal with a behavioral disorder, it is also crucial to look for any underlying medical causes of the behavioral issues.  For example, elimination problems (house-soiling) could be a sign of gastrointestinal and/or urinary disease.  Animals suffering from chronic pain can often exhibit distressing behaviors; therefore, a veterinarian should perform a […]
