Dr Luc Léger, specialist in small animal surgery, is now part of our surgical department.
a charitable non-profit organization that contributes to the well-being of pets and whose ultimate goal is to prevent needless euthanasia.
In December 2009, we have acquired the latest in terms of blood chemicals and electrolytes: the Catalyst. With the help of this machine, we can obtain quick and precise results, which is really useful when assessing the course of action regarding the health problem your cat might be facing.
We also possess all the range of additional equipment to do all the analysis required to make the best diagnosis possible.
We are equipped with the most powerful laser equipment of the industry: the LaserCyte. This piece of equipment gives us a detailed and exact number of red blood cells, platelets and white blood cells and does the difference of white blood cells count in five (5) declensions: lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophile, eosinophile and basophile, something other equipment does not do.
The SNAPshot DX tests many illnesses within minutes. With the help of this valuable machine, we can obtain results about many diseases and blood problems such as
leukemia, AIDS, giardia, dosage of cortisol, bile acid and T4 for the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism.
that analyses blood gasses.
In only 120 seconds, it permits us to know a multitude of parameters such as the blood gases, P02 , PC02, lactate and the bloods Ph ( acidity/alkaline) which permits us to quickly respond and treat severe and urgent cases. Certain medications are impossible to administer securely without these tests, and can make the difference between life and death in emergency cases.
A cat that suddenly starts to urinate outside his/her litter box, in most cases, suffers from a urinary infection (FUS). The diagnosis is made by a good physical exam along with a urine test (urology). The urology is an ensemble of test of chemical parameters of the animal’s urine, along with a microscopic analysis.
A coprology determines by microscopic analysis of the stool, the presence of intestinal parasites of your pet. It is very important that you perform this test so that we may determine what parasites your pet may be infested with, so that we might choose the appropriate treatment. It is possible that parasites be transmitted to a human, which is why a de-worming program will be suggested according to your pet’s lifestyle.
Cytology are often done ‘’in house’’. Quick and economical, they are indicated for several infections such as otitis, masses and cutaneous lesions. However they do not replace histopathology done in an outside laboratory, by specialists for final diagnosis of worrisome masses that may be found on your pet.
