Lee’s Veterinary Hospital provides quick, efficient, and accurate care for your pets using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as the blood lab at our hospital. Diagnostic blood work can tell our veterinarians what your pet cannot, and they are able to run tests based on simple blood draws. A complete blood count or CBC is an analysis of red and white blood cells as well as platelet counts. Our doctors also run blood chemistry tests that can determine the function level of the liver and kidneys.
Additionally, Lee’s Veterinary Hospital is proficient in the practice of cytology, which examines samples under a microscope. It can be used to diagnose ear infections, skin allergy infections, skin and subcutaneous masses, and lymph node aspirations.
Another test that we are able to run at our hospital is the testing for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), both contagious and possibly fatal diseases. These feline viruses are contagious to cats that are within close contact to each other; therefore, it is necessary to test any new feline that may be joining your household.
Heartworm testing is also conducted on-site and if identified, treatment can begin as quickly as possible. See our Heartworm Testing section for more information.
An accurate diagnosis and faster treatment can yield better results for our patients, which is why we have incorporated these testing procedures into our hospital. Lee Veterinary Hospital wants to provide the best possible service to pet owners in Cullman, Vinemont, Fairview, West Point, and Good Hope, Alabama.
