West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center has a full in-house laboratory on site. Using advanced technology, we can quickly diagnose your pet’s issue and treat accordingly. At our hospital, we have the ability to run comprehensive blood chemistry panels, complete blood counts (CBC’s), test for heartworm and tick borne diseases, test for viral infections (FeLV/FIV, Parvovirus), and run clotting times, amongst other diagnostics. We are able to share the results of these tests with you in a few minutes and can respond immediately if treatment is needed.
We also work with a complete reference laboratory that has the ability to run all diagnostic tests. Samples are picked up at the hospital multiple times a day, allowing for rapid turnaround of test results.
