One of the services that Silver Star Animal Hospital is pleased to offer is in-clinic diagnostics. What is this you may ask? Simply put, Silver Star Animal Hospital is able to run lab work on blood samples, skin scrapings and fecal samples, saving valuable time when it comes to beginning treatments for your beloved pet. Our staff is able to run blood tests like complete blood counts (CBC), heart enzyme testing, liver functions and parasite detection. We are also able to analyze skin scrapings under a microscope to identify parasitical, bacterial or allergic skin infections. Our veterinarian also uses the microscope to evaluate fecal samples for parasite identification. Having these tests at our disposal means that your pet can leave our clinic with medication and a treatment plan in place, rather than waiting for results that may take days or weeks.
