Compass Diagnostic and Laboratory Services

Compass Veterinary Clinic utilizes a wide range of in-house diagnostic and laboratory services to help diagnose your pet’s health and condition. On a daily basis, Compass Veterinary Clinic has a Certified Veterinary Technician that works specifically in the laboratory to read and analyze most diagnostic tests. They then relay the information to the veterinarians so that they can further diagnose the pet.  Some of the tests include but are not limited to:

Fecal Analysis

Skin Scrapes/Impressions

Gram Stains

Blood Cell Counts

Internal Organ Functions

Urinalysis

Compass utilizes the most advanced Blood Analzyer available, the Heska HT5 

The HT5 delivers accurate blood cell count results in under one minute with a blood sample of just about four drops.  The Compass Element HT5 uses the smallest sample size in the industry, resulting in a less traumatic experience for your pet.  The results are then automatically transferred to our Impromed Practice Management system, and are available to the Veterinarian within a few minutes in the exam room.

For Blood Chemistry Analysis, including Enzyme levels, Proteins, Blood Sugar, Electolytes,  and Organ Function, Compass utilizes the Heska Element DC.  

The Element DC can run up to twenty tests on one patient from just one sample.  It is very economical to run, allowing Compass Veterinary Clinic to deliver fast results to our clients without having to send samples to an outside reference lab, which can be more costly and more time consuming.

For more advanced testing than our in-house equipment can produce, we use the services of Antech West.  Antech provides superior results in as little as 24 hours.
