In-House Laboratory

Diagnostic tools allow our vets to get a clear picture of what’s happening inside your pet’s body.

Fast and Accurate Diagnostic Testing

The vets here at Southampton Pet Hospital can determine a lot about your pet’s health by performing a physical exam. Sometimes, though, they need to look a bit deeper. When it comes to things like checking for intestinal parasites, assessing organ function, or testing for viruses, they rely on our in-house laboratory. This equipment allows us to process blood, urine, and fecal samples (and more!) without needing to send them to an outside facility. This saves time and is less stressful for you and your furry friend. Rely on our in-house laboratory in Benicia for fast, accurate results.

Our In-House Laboratory Services

We are equipped to perform a vast array of diagnostic tests in-house. We may need to work with an outside lab for certain services in rare instances, but we will discuss this with you prior to proceeding. A few of the many tests we perform in-house include (but are not limited to):

  • Blood tests
  • Complete blood counts (CBC)
  • Blood gases
  • Pancreatitis testing
  • Testing for viruses (feline leukemia virus, parvovirus, etc.)
  • Skin scrapes
  • Urine tests
  • Heartworm testing
  • Skin, mass, and ear cytology
  • Fecal examinations

If you think your pet may require testing that isn’t mentioned here, please contact us. We would be more than happy to help if we are equipped to do so.
