At Pet Kare Clinic we collect and submit samples to an outside lab every weekday. The outside lab we use for all routine blood tests and biopsies is Antech Diagnostics. Our samples are picked up by FedEx at 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and most test results are received the next day.
Why do we send some tests out and run some in house?
For one, it is more cost effective for our clients to send the tests out. We will elect to run tests in house when we need the results right away for optimal patient care. Secondly, the outside lab is able to run numerous tests that we are not able to run in house.
