Remain pro-active for your pet’s health and well-being.
We are proactive in trying to maintain the health of our patients. This includes heartworm, flea and intestinal parasite prevention and for older pets geriatric blood work to screen for conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, etc.
A large part of preventive medicine is also blood work. Running yearly blood work allows our veterinarians to get a picture of your pet’s health from the inside. At Catoctin Vet Clinic we have a full in house lab with state of the art equipment allowing us to have test results within minutes for sick animals.
Our in house lab includes;
- Lasercyte Complete Blood Count machine
- Blood Chemistry analyzer
- Full urinalysis
- Feline Immuno Deficiency Virus/ Feline Leukemia snap test
- Canine Heartworm and tick born disease snap test.
We also work with one of the premier veterinary laboratory services in the country to offer additional tests that we cannot perform in house. For tests, we send to our outside lab and we often have results within 24-48 hours.
In addition, we have an in-house pharmacy for your pet’s medical needs. We carry anything from antibiotics and pain medication to flea and tick prevention.
