Having an in-house diagnostics laboratory and digital radiography capabilities means that Brookside Animal Hospital offers a wide range of diagnostic services all under one roof. These in-house testing capabilities provide pet owners in Tulsa, Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Glenpool, Berryhill, and Jenks, Oklahoma with an expedited diagnosing process for their companion pets. Instead of having to send out tests and lab samples to outside laboratories and waiting days for the results, we can process them on site, typically within a matter of minutes. This is especially beneficial for critical illness and injury cases that need prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Some health conditions may not be obvious during an external examination. For this reason, we conduct in-house diagnostic tests to get an accurate picture of your pet’s overall health. At Brookside Animal Hospital, we recommend regular diagnostic testing so that our veterinarian will have baseline information about your pet. Having a history of test results lets us know if there is a significant change that indicates an underlying condition or disease.
Brookside Animal Hospital’s in-house diagnostic capabilities enable us to conduct complete blood count (CBCs) and full chemistry panels. We test for heartworms and tick borne diseases with our 4Dx SNAP test, and we conduct fecal analyses and urinalysis. Results from diagnostic testing can detect infection and anemia, determine electrolyte status and hydration levels, evaluate kidney, liver, and pancreas function, screen for thyroid disease, check blood sugar levels, and more.
