At our on-site Laboratory, we conduct various diagnostic tests such as Gram Stains, Giardia tests, fecal parasite centrifugation, Complete Blood Counts (CBC), Blood Chemistries, Heartworm tests, Dermatophyte Fungal cultures, skin scrapings, and urinalysis.
When bird blood work results are not required immediately, we send samples to California Avian Laboratory via overnight FedEx. This lab specializes in small animal and bird samples and provides us with a comprehensive range of information.
We also partner with Zoo/Exotic Pathology Service, one of the country’s leading avian pathologists, for cytology and pathology services. For DNA blood testing of avian diseases, we collaborate with the Veterinary Molecular Diagnostics laboratory.
In addition, we use the services of Antech Laboratories, where we send dog and cat samples, picked up by a courier, for same-day or next-day results for most samples.
