Raccoons are very intelligent and curious however, and although we did the procedure under anesthesia, as ...

Most of the more complicated tests are very expensive and require specialized machinery and testing supplies. In order to make the process more efficient, most veterinarians send out their blood samples to a lab that specializes in these tests ...
