Lab work is used for advanced diagnostics and to gain a better understanding of how your pet’s internal organs are functioning. Dr. Fordham will recommend necessary diagnostic lab work at your visit and explain the purpose of each test he is recommending. At Tall Grass Animal Hospital we will have access to run blood work in house to get results in a few minutes. We will also have access to IDEXX Labratory who will pick up our samples twice a day and have most results available the next day. If lab work is sent out to IDEXX before the afternoon pick-up then we will get most results that evening. Both services offer accurate results and state of the art quality control systems. IDEXX will give me the opportunity to easily trend results over time to catch small subtle changes that can allow me to detect some diseases early.
