When urgency is not required, our blood, fecal and urine samples to are sent for testing to outside facilities to help reduce costs. When needed, we also send samples to several universities for advanced testing.
When lab test results are needed immediately to diagnose a problem, the Island Hammock Pet Hospital has an in-house laboratory. Our lab provides us with rapid and comprehensive analysis capabilities, required to make immediate decisions pertaining to the care of our patients.
This methodology allows us to reduce the cost of testing, but still obtain all the necessary information about your pet’s current medical state when we need it.
