Veterinary Laboratory in Mechanicsburg
Comprehensive Lab Testing & Services
In addition to physical examinations, our veterinarians use blood tests and other laboratory work to better assess your pet’s health. These blood tests give us a “baseline” of what is normal for your pet. From there, we are better able to assess your pet’s overall health and determine if he or she may be suffering from an illness, condition, or disease.
At Winding Hills Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to offer in-house lab testing at our full-service, on-site veterinary laboratory in Mechanicsburg. We serve patients and clients from across Central Pennsylvania, including those in Harrisburg and the surrounding areas.
The Importance of Bloodwork
Blood tests are very valuable in the early detection of diseases in pets. Studies have shown that 25 percent of dogs and cats over the age of 10 years have a treatable disease that is not causing symptoms.
Subtle changes in your pet’s bloodwork over time may signal the presence of an underlying disease. We recommend that dogs and cats have blood testing done every year during their comprehensive wellness exam.
Regular blood testing for your pet can:
- Detect disease early on
- Allow for early treatment of diseases/conditions
- Prolong the life of your pet
- Ensure your pet’s comfort
- Allow for proper preventative care
