In-Clinic Diagnostics

When pets are sick and not feeling well, it is important to gather as much information about their health condition as quickly as possible in order to start administering the best treatment right away. For this reason, South Shreveport Animal Hospital maintains a complete in-clinic diagnostic laboratory equipped with the latest technology that allows us to get results quickly and accurately.

Our in-house diagnostic equipment includes IDEXX analyzers that enable us to conduct chemistry panels, complete blood counts, and urinalysis testing and get the results within a matter of minutes. This quick turnaround time makes it possible for our veterinarian to give you a diagnosis and start treatment on the same day. Some of our in-house testing includes:

  • Complete Blood Counts
  • Electrolyte Analysis
  • Urinalysis
  • Feline Leukemia/ FIV Testing
  • Cytology
  • Chemistry Profiles
  • Thyroid Testing
  • Heartworm Testing
  • Fecal Analysis
  • Giardia Testing
  • Parvo Testing
  • Test for Pancreatitis
  • New Urine sediment machine

For pets who are not seriously ill, we are able to offer a comprehensive wellness profile that includes both fecal and heartworm tests. These tests are sent to an outside laboratory, and we typically receive the test results in 1 or 2 days. Additionally, should your pet need specialty testing, we routinely overnight samples to outside labs.

If you feel that something is not right with your pet, don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment. South Shreveport Animal Hospital supports pet owners in Shreveport, Bossier City, Benton, Keithville, and the surrounding areas.
