Laboratory Services

In-House Laboratory
Riverbend Animal Hospital has a full service in-house laboratory, which enables us to run many of our lab tests on site. As a result, we can have answers back on tests in a matter of minutes or hours, rather than days. The tests we run include routine screening tests for Heartworm, Lyme and other tick borne diseases, as well as Feline Leukemia and FIV.

In addition to routine screening, we have the ability to run many diagnostic tests and obtain accurate results rapidly. These tests include in-house hematology, chemistry, urinalysis, and cytology.

Outside Laboratory Services
Riverbend utilizes the services of several commercial laboratories providing a wide range of lab tests. Results are often available within 24 hours, although some tests, such as cultures and histopathology, take longer.
