Laboratory & Diagnostics

Southside Animal Hospital houses a fully equipped laboratory that allows our doctors and staff to perform many diagnostic tests on-site here in San Angelo. We have Heska machines for our CBC (complete blood count) and blood chemistry analysis. We also perform in-house urinalysis, fecal flotation & analysis, cytology, skin scraping, DTM fungal culture, Wood’s lamp exam, video otoscopy, corneal stains, Schirmer tear testing, Tonopen testing for intraocular pressure, fundic exams, heartworm antigen and microfilariae testing, tick-borne disease testing, Parvo virus testing, Feline Leukemia virus and Feline Immunodeficiency virus (FIV) testing, in-house testing for canine and feline pancreatitis and limited endoscopy.

 

For those diagnostic tests that cannot be performed in-house or that our doctors feel require analysis by a specialist, we use a combination of laboratories to make sure that your pet receives the best diagnostic testing that we can offer. Depending on the test, we have most results returned within 3-4 days.
