Diagnostics

At Tender Loving Care we believe that not all blood work should have to be sent out. That’s why we carry a number of  convenient in house Test kits to better serve our clients, with an 8-10 minute result for the more common diagnostics. We also send out (in select locations) comprehensive tests to national IDEXX Laboratories where state of the art labs run and review your pets blood work. Upon completion of your in house testing  a Doctor will review the results with you personally. All other comprehensive tests will be reviewed over the phone at no additional cost.
