In-House Laboratory Services

West Ballantyne Animal Hospital's in-house vet laboratory.

West Ballantyne Animal Hospital offers in-house laboratory testing for dogs and cats at our vet clinic in Charlotte. Our laboratory allows us to diagnose a variety of medical conditions in-house without having to send samples to another lab and wait for test results.This allows us to monitor your pet’s treatment and recovery process after certain procedures more efficiently than other clinics — that means fewer necessary visits and a smaller bill for you! We perform the following diagnostic tests on-site at our vet clinic:

  • CBC (Complete Blood Counts)
  • Blood chemistry panels to evaluate internal organ function
  • Urinalysis and fecal examinations
  • Fecal testing for intestinal parasites
  • Parvovirus testing
  • Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus testing
  • Heartworm Disease
  • Tick Diseases including Lyme, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis
  • Electrolyte evaluation
  • Cytology of skin and ear samples

If your pet requires any additional testing, we also partner with an outside reference lab that offers overnight testing on specialized tests that we cannot perform. For more information about our on-site laboratory diagnostic testing, call West Ballantyne Animal Hospital today!
