Pet Laboratory & Diagnostics
in East Longmeadow, MA

East Longmeadow Animal Hospital is proud to offer laboratory testing with our state-of-the-art in-house equipment. We provide a wide array of laboratory tests, all of which are performed directly inside our hospital.

Here at East Longmeadow Animal Hospital, we have an in-house laboratory and digital x-ray equipment.

This equipment provides same-day results for your pet, when needed, and allows us to start treatment during that same visit. For the more complicated cases, we work with a handful of outside laboratories to get answers with a speedy turnaround as well.

Some of our common laboratory tests include:

  • Urinalysis/urine culture and sensitivity
  • Complete blood counts (CBC)
  • Pre-operative screenings
  • Major organs including liver and kidney functions
  • Thyroid levels
  • Skin fungal cultures

In order to provide clients and patients with even more diagnostic tools, our x-rays have more detail than ever. Also, being fully digital means that patients that are referred out have the ability to bring their x-rays with them on a CD or to be emailed ahead. We strive to ensure that all patients get the best treatment available to them in a prompt and efficient manner.

What are some reasons that my pet may need x-rays?

  • Foreign objects
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Pneumonia, bronchitis, or other chest related issues
  • GI upset
  • Heart conditions
  • Masses/cancers
