Pathology is the study of disease processes in the body.  Determining the pathology is often the first step in creating a diagnosis and treatment plan.

The disease process can be detected through fluid analysis (examples: blood work, urinalysis), aspirates/cytology (example: needle biopsies of a mass), tissue samples/histology (example: excisional biopsy) and even behavioral (example: an animal circles only to the right).

By understanding disease processes, our trained veterinary team can understand and anticipate the consequences in our beloved pets.
