Laboratory Diagnostics

Lab Diagnostics in Meridian Idaho

As a full-service veterinary facility, Intermountain Pet Hospital offers a complete array of diagnostic tools. Because so many factors can affect an animal’s health, proper diagnosis is essential to effectively managing your pet’s condition.

While our doctors can detect several issues with a complete physical exam, they can't see what may be going on inside your pet. Because emergency situations require fast lab results, we've invested in a complete in-house laboratory diagnostic testing system. This system allows us to get immediate results and begin treatments quickly. This can make the difference between saving your pet's life and losing it. This technology is available at both our main hospital and our satellite location.

On-Site Laboratory Services

Our on-site laboratory allows us to obtain the rapid results, so you don’t have an unnecessary wait or delay in your pet’s care, and we can begin treatment as quickly as possible. On-site services include:

  • CBC
  • Blood Chemistry

  • Intestinal parasite exams
  • Semen evaluation
