Laboratory & Pharmacy
Diagnostic and Laboratory
Riverside offers in house diagnostic laboratory testing for our patients and is able to perform in-hospital testing for complete blood counts, chemistry profiles, and urinalyses which allows a more timely diagnosis and treatment for your pet. Precious time can be wasted waiting for lab tests from an outside reference lab. Although we do utilize our reference lab for testing we also can perform in house thyroid testing, cortisols, gram stains, cytology, coagulation profiles, cultures, and several fecal tests as well as virus testing for FeLV, FIV, and parvovirus and heartworm testing for dogs and cats.
Our in house laboratory is a state of the art lab with modern Idexx equipment. All of our in house lab machines undergo regular quality controls so we can be assured results are accurate. We rely on our in house laboratory to allow our doctors to provide the highest quality of care that your pet deserves. When time matters, we rely on our ability to perform patient-side testing.
