While our pets can’t tell us when something is wrong, we can use scientific testing and veterinary experience to discover underlying diseases and disorders. As one of Chapel Hill’s diagnostic leaders, Meadowmont Animal Hospital’s in-house laboratory features advanced analytic equipment used to examine and test tissue samples. With results in less than 20 minutes, this technology pinpoints the problem and allows the proper treatment to commence quickly.
Blood work is a particularly useful tool that can tell us valuable information about your pet’s red blood cells, immune system, digestive tract, circulatory system and internal organ function. This simple, inexpensive test can reveal evidence of disease before symptoms appear. Catching disease early dramatically improves treatment efficacy and improves quality of life.
