Full In-House Laboratory in Fort Washington
Serving Clients in Glenside, Maple Glen, Dresher, Wyndmoor & Surrounding Cities
While physical wellness examinations give veterinarians a good idea of your pet’s health, they do not give the complete picture. Therefore, we rely on a variety of laboratory tests to help detect and diagnose any health problems, sometimes even before your pet shows any symptoms. At Fort Washington Veterinary Hospital, having an on-site laboratory allows our staff to perform comprehensive diagnostic testing and receive results in a timely manner.
Our in-house laboratory facility provide for the following:
- Complete blood counts (CBC)
- Chemistry screens (liver, kidney, glucose, cholesterol, albumin, globulin, amylase, electrolytes)
- Ear discharge analysis
Some diseases or health conditions are only able to be diagnosed through blood or other laboratory work.
Our veterinarians routinely test for the following:
- Heartworm (we recommend yearly testing for heartworm disease)
- Lyme disease
- Feline leukemia
- Feline immunodeficiency virus
Enjoy a casual conversation with other clients in our waiting area. You are also welcome to wait for appointments outside or in your car.
We deliver client (& non-client) donations to local pets in need, as well as participate in fundraisers and local events.
