In Clinic Diagnostics
Sumrall Animal Clinic is capable of providing accurate and efficient diagnostics using our Blood Chemistry and CBC analyzers. Within minutes these machines can tell Dr. White what your pet cannot: what is happening inside their body. Blood Chemistries determine how your pet’s liver, kidney, and pancreas are functioning and give vital information on electrolyte balance, hydration, and blood glucose levels. CBCs (complete blood counts) can indicate if your pet is anemic, has an infection, or has certain types of cancers. This information allows Dr. White to more effectively guide the treatment of your pet. It also allows her to assess your pet’s general health (especially important geriatric patients) and to determine proper anesthetic protocol should your pet require surgery.
Dr. White and her staff also analyze skin scrapings for topical parasites and fungal infections. Fecal flotation is performed routinely to determine intestinal parasite loads.
In addition, Sumrall Animal Clinic can provide same-day results when checking for Heartworms, Parvovirus, and Feline Leukemia Virus / Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FeLV/FlV).
