The State Street Animal Hospital, PC offers complete laboratory service.

We perform many laboratory procedures in-house, often being able to provide results before your pet is finished with his/her appointment. Tests for heartworm, Lyme disease, feline leukemia and aids viruses, intestinal parasites and others are routine.

Other tests are performed when they are indicated during your pet’s physical exam. Blood screening tests are done before anesthesia for your pet’s safety, or to help diagnose disease. ‘Cytology’, or looking at samples under a microscope, is used to find out what type of organism is causing your pet’s ear infection, and on many lumps to see if they are cancerous or not. We are able to have many other tests performed for your pet’s individual needs.
