Briarwood Animal Hospital has recently invested in the most advanced in-clinic diagnostic laboratory available in veterinary medicine. Our new laboratory allows our caring doctors to run blood work for pets, and obtain results within minutes to begin treatment as necessary. You can get results while you wait on our analyzers to provide blood chemistry results, complete blood counts (CBCs), electrolyte levels, and thyroid values within half an hour.
Blood work is important for pets prior to any surgery, to determine if they may have an underlying issue that cannot be seen during physical examinations. These values are also important for sick animals that are simply not their usual playful selves to insure they are as healthy on the inside as they appear on the outside. Finally, blood work is an important tool to help our doctors find potential issues early for the most affective treatment. Given the experience of our veterinarians and the advanced technology, you can rest assured that your pets are in the best hands at Briarwood.
