Comprehensive Laboratory & Diagnostic Services
At Barlow Trail Animal Hospital, we have a full in-house laboratory and several highly experienced veterinary technologists to provide diagnostic services. Whether you need simple lab work like heartworm tests, FIV tests or full blood work, we can do it all!
This ultimately means faster treatment for your pets, as we can diagnose conditions quicker as we do not have to send off diagnostic tests and wait several days to get results back, we can do it all in-house!
Establishing a fast diagnosis for your pet is critical in assessing their overall health and in allowing us to determine the appropriate course of action. To help with this, and to ultimately deliver fast care to your pets, we are fully equipped with digital radiography and dental digital radiograph. We also work closely with petrays consultants who staff board certified radiologists to review radiographs for medical cases.
To help us deliver FAST treatment to your pets, we use the highest quality imaging technology available for diagnostic purposes, meaning we have the ability to quickly produce x-ray images at minimal exposure for your pet!
Skin Work Ups
Skin conditions including allergies are very common in pets nowadays. We offer skin appointments, second opinions and work ups prior to seeking a specialized dermatology consultation. We have a well trained staff who have extensive experience dealing with skin infections, atopic allergies and food allergies. For intradermal skin testing, we refer out to 2 locations in Calgary once food allergies and allergy work up is complete.
