We want your dog or cat to feel better as quickly as possible. Whether it’s a simple or serious problem, our in-house laboratory allows us to diagnose quickly and get started on treatment.
Wellesley Animal Hospital has a well-equipped, in-house laboratory. This allows our veterinarians and technicians to review and react to timelier and more accurate test results.
We perform a wide range of tests at our in-house lab, including blood counts, chemistry profiles, checks for parasites, and screening for a variety of diseases. These tests are performed by our licensed and degreed veterinary technicians, and our doctors review the results within minutes.
Our in-house lab offers extra convenience for you, too. If your pet requires anesthesia, we will perform pre-anesthetic blood work on the same day as your pet’s procedure. That means one less visit for you and your pet to the vet’s office– as well as a more accurate blood profile for your doctor.
When your pet requires a test that cannot be performed in our hospital, our staff can take the necessary samples and send them to the appropriate laboratories. In these cases, the test results are often available the next day.
Wellesley Animal Hospital is proud to provide our lab services to the pets of Richmond, Short Pump, Glen Allen, and Henrico.
