In-House Laboratory Testing

West Hills Veterinary Centre has an in-house laboratory that provides us point-of-care diagnostic abilities during your pet’s wellness exams and while we treat sick or injured pets. This also lets us give a proper evaluation for every surgery patient we have prior to anesthesia.

At our in-house laboratory, we can conduct blood work, which includes completing blood counts and chemistry panels, and with fecal testing, we can look for intestinal parasites including:

  • Heartworms
  • Hookworms
  • Roundworms
  • Whipworms

Urinalysis can also help detect liver and kidney problems as well as infections and diabetes.

Our laboratory is located inside our veterinary center, which enables us to get fast results for your pet. If immediate treatment is necessary, we will be able to do that quickly, giving your pet a better chance at recovery.
