Early detection is key in treating illness and injury, and Lee Animal Hospital offers complete in-house diagnostics, including advanced equipment and an on-site laboratory. This saves time and money, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait overnight for results—meaning your pet gets a diagnosis and needed treatment sooner.

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital can perform various blood screens, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, urinalysis, and other types of testing on-site instead of sending samples to an outside lab.

Testing provided in the hospital includes:

  • Liver enzyme screening
  • Pancreatic evaluation
  • Renal (Kidney) profiles
  • Complete blood counts
  • General chemistries
  • Blood gases
  • FeLV, FIV in cats
  • Parvovirus in dogs

While we offer extensive on-site testing, your pet may need laboratory work beyond our scope. In those cases, we partner with a high-quality outside lab, which will send the results back to us.

Digital Radiology (X-Rays)

Lee Animal Hospital employs advanced imaging technologies, guaranteeing our patients the highest quality of care.

Digital radiographs use electromagnetic radiation directed toward the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease. In addition to traditional X-ray equipment, we also have high-quality, wireless digital X-ray equipment, allowing us to get real-time X-rays during orthopedic procedures. 


Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time, 3-D image of an animal’s body. This reveals important information about internal processes, including the circulatory, skeletal, and gastrointestinal systems.

An ultrasound works by broadcasting high-frequency sound waves that reflect off your pet’s internal structures. A small probe held against the skin collects the returning signals to create an image of the internal body, most commonly used to examine abdominal organs like the stomach, kidneys, liver, spleen, and gallbladder. An ultrasound of the heart, known as an echocardiogram, provides precise information about heart valves, blood flow, chamber size, and contractions.

When used with other diagnostic tools like X-rays, ultrasounds can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, and other internal injuries.
