In-House IDEXX Laboratory

University Parkway Animal Hospital’s In-House IDEXX Laboratory

Advances in medical science, particularly in laboratory equipment and testing protocols have helped veterinarians improve the wellbeing of countless pets, helping not just to keep them alive but to help these beloved animal companions thrive.

If you’re like many pet owners, you consider your pet to be a member of your family, and as such, you want only the best for your animals. This is why so many pet owners in the greater Jackson, TN area and beyond have come to trust the veterinary professionals at University Parkway Animal Hospital.

We are proud to offer to test through our very own in-house IDEXX Laboratory. The reason we have our own testing setup is so that we can provide answers to pressing medical questions about the pets brought here for urgent care, emergencies as well as treatment for chronic conditions. 

Since we also provide pet boarding services here, pet owners will have a sense of comfort knowing that if their animal is sick or becomes sick while staying here, the staff can quickly run tests to help in diagnosis and treatment. You’re in good hands when you entrust your pets to our animal hospital.

Capabilities of Our IDEXX Lab

Our practice’s full, in-house IDEXX is capable of running all standard tests needed to diagnose the animal companions we routinely treat. This means that if your pet becomes mysteriously ill and you are worried about the progress of its condition, you can bring the animal to our hospital to get test results in the fastest possible way.

We can run chemistry panels, get a blood count, perform urine analysis as well as screen for internal parasites that would be otherwise more difficult to detect.

Typical Screenings We Offer Here at University Parkway Animal Hospital

When your pet is ill and it is not immediately obvious what the problem is, there are a number of different tests that we can run to get to the heart of the matter. Tests that we commonly run for pets include:

  • Urine
  • Heartworm
  • Feline Leukemia
  • Complete blood count
  • Blood disorders 
  • Chemistry panels
  • Thyroid problems
  • Cardiac issues
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease

This list of screenings is by no means comprehensive. If you are curious about whether we offer a particular type of test, we urge you to contact our office to inquire about its availability.
