Sound Diagnostics is a private veterinary diagnostic laboratory, established in 1996 by two veterinarians from the University of Washington, Barbara Deeb, DVM, MS and Ronald DiGiacomo, VMD, MPH. In 2006, Sound Diagnostics was purchased by Ahmed Hassouneh, MS. He is the Laboratory Manager at Phoenix Central Laboratory, the largest independent veterinary diagnostic laboratory in the Northwest.
Our mission is to develop and provide assays for the detection of infectious agents in small mammals (rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats and mice). Currently, the laboratory offers serology for the detection of antibodies to various infectious agents of rabbits, rats and mice, and parasitology for the detection of external and internal parasites of rats and mice. These services are available to veterinarians, companies and institutions. Individual owners of animals wishing to use our services are urged to work with their veterinarians.
