In House Laboratory

Image403493 (1)Crosslake Veterinary Hospital can provide in-house diagnostic testing for a variety of conditions within minutes. Our equipment can provide comprehensive bloodwork including a complete blood count, serum chemistry and clotting times.

We routinely test dogs for heartworm disease and multiple tick-borne pathogens such as Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, and Ehrlichiosis, which are endemic in parts of Minnesota. A urinalysis is also an important component of assessing a patient’s overall health, which Crosslake Veterinary Hospital routinely performs.

We also utilize fecal centrifugation to diagnose parasite burden, the most accurate method of detecting whether your pet has parasites or not.

One clinic cannot provide all the testing your pet may need in his or her lifetime. If and when that time comes, we utilize reference laboratories that specialize in veterinary medicine and provide quick turnaround times to allow us to provide you with an answer sooner.

In-house testing can be used to evaluate:

  • Heartworm Disease

  • Tick-borne disease screening

  • Complete blood count

  • Comprehensive serum chemistry

  • Thyroid testing

  • Urinalysis

  • Liver enzyme screens

  • Kidney value monitoring

  • Pancreatic enzyme elevation

  • Feline cardiac enzyme levels

  • Feline retrovirus testing

  • Serum phenobarbital level monitoring

  • Serum fructosamine levels to monitor diabetic regulation



The above list is only a partial list of laboratory services provided by Crosslake Veterinary Hospital. Contact us with any questions you may have regarding additional in-house lab tests.
