We have a large laboratory available to run tests in-house. This allows us to get test results in as little as 15-20 minutes. Our Idexx Vet lab station includes several machines capable of running a variety of tests.

  • Catalyst Dx
    • The catalyst has the ability to check 10-17 individual clips
    • This machine monitors kidney, liver, glucose, and pancreatic function.
    • We can use the catalyst to track fuctosamine for diabetes management.
    • The catalyst can also measure phenobarbital levels for seizure management.
    • New! The catalyst can run a urine P:C ratio to detect early renal failure.
  • Procyte Dx
    • The procyte is the newest state-of-the art machine for complete blood counts.
    • The procyte analyzes blood and fluid composition  including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
    • We can use the procyte to check for anemia and infections.
  • Snapshot Dx
    • The snapshot runs individualized tests to screen for various diseases and conditions.
    • This machine allows us to test for exposure to tick borne diseases such as Lymes, Ehrlicia, and Anaplasma.
    • The snapshot can assess thyroid hormone levels. 
    • We can use the snapshot to screen for feline leukemia and FIV in cats.
  • Coag Dx
    • This machine allows us to test for D-con and Wafarin rat poisoning.
  • UA Analyser
    • The UA analyzes the composition of urine samples. This allows us to screen for urinary tract infections, crystals, and bladder stones.
  • Fecal Screens
    • Our technicians can analyze fecal samples in-house to screen for common intestinal parasites.  We also have the ability to send the sample to Idexx for additional screening if necessary.
  • Reference Laboratories
    • When we cannot run a sample in-house, we send it to Idexx or Marshfield labs- usually with results in 24 hours.
