Many blood tests can be run at our in-house laboratory while you wait. We also have access to an outside laboratory for additional testing if needed.

Pet In-House Laboratory

Our in-house lab at Northgate Animal Hospital offers crucial fecal examinations, heartworm tests, and more. Stool samples enable us to identify any internal parasites that may be plaguing your pet.

Such parasites can deplete your pet’s vitality and stamina, and in severe cases or in young animals, they may even be fatal. Heartworms are parasites that are spread by mosquitoes and can lead to serious liver, lung, and cardiac conditions. By taking preventive drugs, we can both cure and prevent these parasites.
