Pet Lab Express provides Preventative & Diagnostic Testing for both adult and senior dogs and cats. Services available include more than 300 individual tests and 200 profile/panel tests with a primary focus on:
Wellness Profile – As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Even pets that appear completely healthy can have hidden health problems. Left undetected, these problems can lead to serious, even life-threatening conditions. Blood tests are essential tools for identifying diseases at the earliest stage possible, when they are the most treatable.
Comprehensive Profile – Adult pets should have a Comprehensive Profile performed every 12 months and senior pets more frequently based on health status. The senior wellness profile consists of a series of “super chem” tests to determine the overall health of your senior pets. The goal is to detect an illness or disease before your pet becomes symptomatically ill in order to intervene sooner. By intervening sooner your pet’s longevity and quality of life may be improved.
Heartworm Testing – Dogs and cats should be screened annually for heartworms. This parasite lives in the heart and major blood vessels. It can cause severe life-threatening heart and lung disease. Treatment is risky and expensive; however, heartworm disease is entirely preventable with regular lab testing and medication.
Urinalysis – A routine test that reports the physical and chemical properties of urine. This test is used mainly to assess the health of the kidneys and urinary system, but it can also reveal problems in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic disease such as diabetes mellitus. Pets with a history of urinary crystals or stones should have their urine monitored regularly.
Fecal Testing – Periodic fecal testing is an important test that is often overlooked. Most pets will be infected with some type of intestinal parasite during their lifetime. Besides being detrimental to your pet’s health, did you know that many of these parasites are a risk to you, too? Pregnant women, children, and immune-compromised people are at increased risk of contracting parasitic diseases from infected pets. Two of the most common human parasitic diseases in the United States can be transmissible by our pets.
