The majority of our patient’s blood, urine and bodily fluid testing is performed in our in-house laboratory. This allows for rapid results which is important for all of our critically ill patients. Occasionally, specialized blood, urine, fluid and other biological tests are required for which there is no in house equipment available. In these situations, we rely on various national veterinary reference laboratories to perform the testing that our patients require. Biological samples are sent via overnight express to various laboratories around the country with the results sometimes available the very next day.
