Manassas Veterinary Wellness Lab Testing

Diagnostics to Monitor Your Pet’s Health

When you bring your pet into Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic for their regular wellness exam, our veterinary team will order various laboratory tests as part of our effort to keep a close eye on their health. We use the results of your pet’s regular wellness laboratory tests to maintain a record of their health throughout their lives. This helps us to identify changes before they become a major health issue as well as to diagnose your pet when they’re not feeling their best.

If your pet hasn’t been in to see our Manassas veterinarians for a while, call (703) 546-9098 or contact us online to make an appointment today!

Lab Testing at Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic

Diagnosing your pet when they’re feeling under the weather can be difficult because we don’t speak the same language as they do. Fortunately, at Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic, our laboratory services go a long way to helping us understand what’s going on with your pet’s health. We utilize laboratory testing as a part of our regular wellness exams to keep a steady record of your pet’s normal health. When your pet is suffering from a medical condition or just isn’t feeling their best, we use their medical record to help us more quickly identify what may be ailing them.

The following laboratory tests are available at Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic:

  • Bloodwork – Routine blood testing is an essential part of establishing a baseline of health for your pet. We use bloodwork to both monitor their ongoing health as well as identify underlying diseases or risk factors. We also will request bloodwork before your pet undergoes any surgical procedure that requires anesthesia.
  • Fecal check – When you bring your pet in for their regular wellness exams, we will often ask you to bring in a fresh fecal sample. We will perform a fecal check on this sample in order to look for parasites, such as giardia, hookworms, and tapeworms. Fecal checks can be helpful in diagnosing dietary issues as well.
  • Heartworm testing – If we suspect your pet may be suffering from heartworms, we are able to test them in our clinic. If your pet is normally active and is suddenly coughing after exercise, or avoiding exercise entirely, we will test for heartworms. It’s important to detect heartworms early, as it can be fatal in severe or untreated cases.
  • Urinalysis – In addition to blood testing, we may take a sample of your pet’s urine to analyze for diseases or infections. If we suspect that your pet may be suffering from urinary tract infections, crystals, or stones, urinalysis can help. This test can also help us identify early signs of diseases such as diabetes.

Every one of the above tests are performed with care and attention to detail by a member of our Manassas veterinary team. We keep careful track of your pet’s health and these tests can provide us with a wealth of information that will go a long way to keeping your pet health for the long-term.

Regular lab tests can save your pet’s life. Keep on top of their health by calling (703) 546-9098 or contacting us online to make an appointment today.

Pawsatively Raving Reviews

  • We are treated just as if we were part of the regular Independent Hill "family".

    “I love the relaxed atmosphere and everyone is friendly and very helpful. My regular vet is 5 minutes from my house, but I bring my 2-year-old Golden Retriever in for chiropractic care with Dr McFaddin.”

  • Highly recommended!

    “We’ve been bringing our pets here for over 15 years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. My mom moved to Fairfax and she still drives down to Independent Hill if that says anything. The staff has always been extremely caring...”
