Diagnostics & Pharmacy
We know time is critical when pets are sick.
We have an in-house lab which is state of the art. With this equipment we are able to perform bloodwork including, a full chemistry profile, complete blood count (CBC), thyroid screening, pancreatitis diagnostics, liver screening, annual screening for heartworm, lyme disease, ehrlichia and anaplasma (two other tick borne diseases common to this area), and urinalysis among other tests for same day results.
We also submit specimens daily to IDEXX Laboratories. Most lab results are received the following day.
We have a fully stocked pharmacy with most medications used to prevent or treat illnesses. We can also special order items as needed, and carry a full line of prescription diets.
We ask that you provide us with 48 hours notice for prescription refills to allow us ample time to prepare your medications.
You can also request refills online through Covetrus: https://belchertownvethosp.vetsfirstchoice.com/
