In-Clinic Diagnostics

When pets are sick and not feeling well, it is important to gather as much information about their health condition as quickly as possible in order to start administering the best treatment right away. For this reason, Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic maintains an in-clinic diagnostic laboratory equipped with the latest technology that allows us to get results quickly and accurately.

Our in-house array of diagnostic tools includes hematology and chemistry analyzers as well as parasite and viral testing, urinalysis, and microscopy. This enables us to conduct complete blood counts, chemistry panels, fecal testing, heartworm, and parasite testing. The quick turnaround time of our in-house testing makes it possible for our veterinarian to give you a diagnosis and start treatment on the same day. If specialized testing is required, we can prepare samples to be sent out to a reference laboratory.

If you feel that something is not right with your pet, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic supports pet owners in the Greater Baton Rouge area and other nearby communities.
