Dr. Jan offers the following diagnostic services for your pet:
- Blood Tests – A small amount of blood from your pet can provide invaluable information about its overall health. Ideally your pet will have been fasted for 8 hours prior to taking the sample. If you have an unwell pet, the sample would be taken and sent by Canmore Courier, to Central Veterinary Laboratory in Calgary. Results are often available within 6 hours of reaching the laboratory.
- Urine Analysis – collected by the owner, or by using a sterile needle
- Histology, Cytology and Pathology – lumps and bumps can be sent to Central Veterinary Laboratory in Calgary, to assess the cause of the growth, or by using a new and more cost effective service provided by Dr. Norm Lowes of Cytovetstat, iPhone pics taken of a sample under the microscope are emailed to Dr. Norm for assessment.
