Diagnostics

At RVVH we offer a full array of in-house diagnostics.  We can provide rapid in-house testing for FeLV/FIV testing for cats, heartworm and tick-borne disease testing for dogs, fluid and skin cytology, giardia antigen tests, fecal analysis for intestinal parasites, glucose curves for monitoring diabetic patients, urinalysis, and bloodwork including automated complete blood counts, electrolyte levels, and serum chemistry profiles.  Catalyst and Lasercyte blood analyzers allow us to obtain results in under 15 minutes.

We use several outside labs for more in-depth testing such as hormone levels, drug therapy monitoring, microbial cultures and antibiotic sensitivity, and histopathology of tissue biopsies.
