Our in-house Heska laboratory gives us same-day, point-of-care diagnostic abilities and allows us to internally evaluate every patient prior to anesthesia. Our wide variety of blood and SNAP tests allow us to accurately diagnose heartworm disease, leptospirosis, canine and feline pancreatitis, giardia, feline leukemia, Cushing’s/Addison’s disease, and UTIs, among many others. We also can send samples out for confirmation on more complicated cases to ensure we are treating your pet accurately and effectively.

Partnering with Heska helps us gain a holistic view of your pet’s health, view trends & abnormalities, and analyze graphs to view your pet’s historical and most recent blood work values.

While we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, it is possible that your pet may need laboratory work beyond our scope. Rest assured, we have established a strong partnership with our outside lab, ensuring that your pet’s lab work is processed efficiently and with the utmost care.

At AllPets Animal Clinic, we believe in the power of tailored treatment plans and lab work. We recognize that every pet is unique, and their healthcare needs may vary. That’s why our talented veterinarians work closely with our trusted lab to create personalized diagnostic and treatment plans specifically designed for your pet.
