In-Clinic Diagnostics

Having an in-house diagnostics laboratory, as well as digital radiography and ultrasound capabilities means that Country Place Veterinary Clinic offers a wide range of diagnostic services in one location. These in-house testing capabilities provide pet owners in St. Martinville, Parks, Breaux Bridge, and Youngsville with an efficient diagnosing process for their companion pets. We can process many test results on site, typically within an hour. This is especially beneficial for critical illness and injury cases that need prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Typical tests that we perform in the clinic include blood work, fecals, cytologies, digital x-rays, ultrasound, and urinalysis testing. Our analyzers allow us to diagnose endocrine abnormalities, hematologic issues, and diseases of internal organs. Heartworm tests and internal parasite screenings are provided daily. When necessary, we use outside commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.

Some health conditions may not be obvious during an external examination. For this reason, we use in-house diagnostic tests to get an accurate picture of your pet’s overall health. At Country Place Veterinary Clinic, we recommend regular diagnostic testing so that our veterinarians will have baseline information about your pet. Having a history of test results lets us know if there is a significant change that indicates an underlying condition or disease.
