There are many reasons why your pet might require diagnostics, whether bloodwork, urinalysis or other laboratory tests. Gallatin Vet is equipped to do most diagnostics in-house, though in certain cases we recommend tests be sent to referral laboratories. Gallatin Vet Hospital is dedicated to getting accurate, timely answers for you and your pet.
Our on site laboratory allows us to perform diagnostic lab testing to help determine the best treatment plan for your pet’s medical condition, particularly for critical cases. We offer full chemistry panels, complete blood count, and many other tests in house so you have the answers needed, today.
We regularly use referral laboratories for a wide range of testing, from basic bloodwork to more extensive diagnostics. Our main lab can get our results back to us in 1-2 days, making it a very good option for many tests.
We also send our histopathology requests to our referral laboratories. Histopathology is the examination of cells under a microscope. Most commonly, these cells come from masses removed from an animal surgically, and the histopath report tells our vets what a mass is, how likely the mass is to return, and in some cases a general prognosis for your pet. This test may take up to 14 days for us to receive results.
We also offer in house electrocardiograms (ECGs) and blood pressures to help us diagnose and monitor certain diseases.
