A urinalysis provides valuable information about a pet’s kidneys, bladder, liver, pancreas, and other organs. It can also aid in determining a prognosis and response to a specific treatment, making it an important laboratory test. Connecticut Veterinary Center is equipped with a new, cutting-edge advanced urine analysis machine to provide the best possible results, including its ability to provide high-resolution digital images. This machine also allows for faster diagnoses than traditional machines and less waiting time for you and your pet.
