In-House Laboratory: Our In-House Laboratory includes state of the art equipment, which provides multiple services such as: CBC and chemistry analyzers, complete blood count analysis, urine analysis, and fecal exams that allow us to provide results in less than 30 minutes, so we can diagnose and render treatment before your pet leaves our hospital. Recently, we have added a hand-held Acid-Base balance analyzer to benefit pets suffering from vomiting, upper GI obstruction, diarrhea, kidney failure and diabetic complications. This enables us to provide immediate care and treatment to sick patients without waiting for outside laboratory results.

Pre-anesthetic blood work is offered at an additional cost before the procedure in order to further ensure the safety of your pet.

Vaccinations contribute tremendously to your pet's health and longstanding well-being. At North Hills Animal Hospital, we strongly recommend that our pet be vaccinated with all appropriate shots annually. Annual vaccinations protect your pet from life-threatening diseases such as distemper, parvovirus, rabies, and bordatella (kennel cough)..
Puppies and kittens have a higher susceptibility to these diseases. Therefore initial shots are vital to ensuring good health for your growing pet. The mother's milk contains antibodies that protect the beginning stages of your pet's life. However this protection soon diminishes the older the animal gets. Therefore vaccinations are given to provide further immunization.
