Tiny Problems with Big Consequences
Both you and your pet are under siege every day by threats so small that they cannot be detected without advanced technology. It is the dangers lurking underneath the surface that make health plans with routine exams so important and why Madison Veterinary Hospital has developed a lab with the latest technology.
If these microscopic diseases or conditions are left untreated, they could truly harm your pet. During your pet’s exam, we will take samples to process in our on-site laboratory. Some of the conditions we test for include:
- Intestinal parasites
- Ear infection
- Fungal culture
- Skin cytology
- Tumor identification
Aside from early detection, our in-house laboratory also has the dual purpose of giving us vital information about the problems within your pet that have already taken root. Choosing pet medications based on symptoms is not an effective way to eliminate the cause of your pet’s discomfort. Pet medications must be chosen based on informed results. Our diagnostic tests will tell us why your pet is ill and our combined years of experience will help us stop the cause altogether. At Madison Veterinary Hospital, we treat the problem—not the symptom.
