In-Clinic Diagnostics

The in-house diagnostic capability at Northtown Animal Clinic provides pet owners in the metro area of Jackson, Mississippi with on-site routine testing to determine your pet’s overall health. Our pets cannot communicate when something is wrong, in fact, they instinctively hide their abnormalities. Diagnostic tests can indicate a condition that may not be seen from the outside.

Our in-house diagnostic capabilities enable us to conduct CBCs, serum chemistries, geriatric screenings, thyroid and adrenal gland testing, pre-anesthesia blood work, feline leukemia testing, feline AIDS testing, fecal analysis, urinalysis, and testing for parasites.

Results from diagnostic testing can detect infection and anemia, determine electrolyte status and hydration level, evaluate kidney, liver, and pancreas function, screen for thyroid disease, check blood sugar levels, and more.

The quick turnaround time of our in-house lab means that our knowledgeable veterinarian can give you his diagnosis and start treatment in the same day. That’s all the better for quickly getting your pet back to normal.

If you feel that something is not right with your pet, don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment with Northtown Animal Clinic.
