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)
  • Urinalysis
  • 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
  • Ehrlichia
  • Anaplasmosis
  • Feline leukemia
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus
