Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for Superior Pet Health Care

Diagnostic laboratory testing provides key insight into the health of your pet. Heart of Chelsea Veterinary Group’s in-house veterinary diagnostic laboratory is able to analyze a variety of diagnostic tests. Many of our standard diagnostic tests can be evaluated while you wait, and our common laboratory tests include:

  • Bacteriological analysis
  • Blood chemistry panel
  • Complete blood count
  • Cytology
  • External parasite evaluation
  • Fecal examination
  • Heartworm test
  • Urinalysis

Key laboratory tests are recommended during your pet’s annual wellness exam. In addition to detecting health issues, diagnostic testing performed on a healthy pet establishes a baseline of health characteristics. The results can be compared over time and can detect subtle changes that may not be noticeable with observation alone.

To ensure the safety of your pet, blood work is required for all anesthetic surgical procedures.

When the results are available, our veterinarians will review and discuss them with you. We will make recommendations to improve your pet’s test results, or develop an individualized medical treatment plan for your pet if necessary. If medication is prescribed for your pet, it can be filled at our onsite veterinary pharmacy.

Your pet’s health is very important to us. We take pride in providing the latest in veterinary lab diagnostics and working with you to provide high quality pet health care. We also strive to provide the ultimate client and patient experience.
