When illness affects your pet, a quick diagnosis can make all the difference between prolonged suffering and a speedy recovery for them.
Town & Country Veterinary Clinic has invested in our in-house laboratory to provide the quickest diagnosis for as many different conditions as possible. From routine lab work to testing that identifies specific diseases, our lab allows us to meet the needs of our diverse client base. Some of the testing that can be performed in our lab include:
Heartworm/Lyme screening – Blood samples are used to check for the presence of heartworm and Lyme disease. We recommend yearly testing for dogs and year-round prevention.
Fecal screening – Stool samples are checked for the presence of intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, and Giardia.
Urinalysis – Urine samples can be examined for kidney health, diabetes, and even the presence of infection.
Complete blood count (CBC) – This blood test checks for the balance of different blood cell types and can give information on anemia, infection, and conditions like leukemia.
Thyroid function – The hormones produced by the thyroid gland can affect a pet’s metabolism and change their energy level and ability to maintain a proper weight.
Adrenal testing – Testing the function of the adrenal glands can help diagnose conditions such as Cushing’s disease.
Feline leukemia – Our Doctors recommend that all outdoor cats be tested for feline leukemia and vaccinated to protect them from this deadly virus.
Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) – This highly contagious virus has no treatment, but cats can be kept comfortable, and symptoms are minimized with early detection.
Parvovirus – Parvovirus is highly contagious and difficult to treat in dogs. Quick lab results can make all the difference.
In addition, we have state-of-the-art equipment across our three locations. All three locations are equipped with X-rays, while our Massena location has Ultrasound, and Ogdensburg has companion laser treatment. Companion laser therapy can help heal pets by using low-level laser light to stimulate cellular activity, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue repair.
