Having a sick pet is an awful, helpless feeling.  When your pet is sick, you need fast answers. We understand that!

At Riverside Animal Hospital, we have invested in a state of the art, in house diagnostic laboratory that can provide the fastest answers in the industry.   

We perform serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and cytology test right here in our own lab.  Routine blood testing, done in the absence of illness or injury is a great way Our in-house blood testing provides the answers our doctors need to help your pet get on the road to recovery, FAST. 

Routine blood testing, done in the absence of illness or injury is a great way to assure us that organ systems of working as expected.  Particularly in the population of aging pets, routine blood testing is an excellent idea.  This gives you peace of mind that your pet looks as healthy on the inside and he or she appears to be on the outside!

For those patients that must take medication to treat chronic illness, regular therapeutic monitoring is essential to gauge success of treatment and make dosage recommendations.  We run glucose curves on our diabetic patients, thyroid tests on hyper-thyroid cats and hypo-thyroid dogs all in house.  For those tests we are unable to run, we are associated with a high quality veterinary reference laboratory.  Using overnight shipping methods and digital communication methods many test results are received the very next day! 

A great example of better living through technology.
