Unfortunately, when our pets are not feeling well, they cannot tell us where they hurt or what happened to them. That’s why veterinary diagnostics are so important. Blood panels, radiographs and ultrasound imaging can all be used to quickly and accurately identify, diagnose and treat whatever is ailing your pet. This early diagnosis can help improve the chances of a quick and full recovery for your pet.
Our hospital uses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment for quick, accurate results to many diagnostic tests. We also use an outside veterinary diagnostic lab to assist with more complex tests, and we can even arrange consultation with clinical pathologists if needed.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform many diagnostic tests with rapid results, aiding in the appropriate treatment options for our patients. We can perform basic blood panels to evaluate general health and organ function, as well as special blood tests to check for conditions such as: heartworm disease, tick borne diseases, feline leukemia and FIV, as well as pancreatitis. Using a microscope, we have the ability to evaluate for skin and ear infections, crystals in the urine and cancerous masses.
In addition to standard diagnostic and dental radiology services, we offer ultrasound imaging at our hospital, which allows us to evaluate the health of many of the internal organs.
A veterinary radiologist consults with our hospital to review radiographs and to perform advanced ultrasound studies when needed.
Because our radiographs are taken digitally, these experts are able to access and review the images usually within 24 hours, allowing us to provide prompt and specific care.
