We offer the latest state-of-the-art in-house diagnostic equipment including complete in-house diagnostic laboratory, digital radiography (X-rays), digital dental radiography, and ultrasound capability permit rapid results to accurately diagnose and treat your pet.
Laboratory: We have an in-house laboratory where we can do tests quickly and accurately on state of the art equipment. These include critical tests like blood chemistry, blood gas analysis, and other in-house tests like lyme disease tests, heartworm disease tests, feline disease testing (leukemia and aids), microscopic slide readings, urine testing, and stool tests. Bloodwork may also be send out to Antech laboratory for testing with results in 2-5 days depending on the test.
Ultrasound Onsite via SonoPath: Ultrasound is an important and useful diagnostic imaging tool used in veterinary medicine to scan your pet internally to detect any abnormalities that may include poor organ function, masses, abdominal fluid, etc. An ultrasound helps track the progress of diseases for early diagnosis, allowing your veterinarian to alter a course of treatment if and when necessary. SonoPath Mobile Veterinary Services allow on-site ultrasounds to be scheduled and interpreted by specialists to obtain a diagnosis or treatment course if necessary.
Digital Radiographs: Digital radiographs are used to evaluate injuries and conditions which require more than external examination. Radiology equipment gives us a non-evasive way to observe your pet’s internal physiology so that we can provide a more thorough and accurate diagnosis. Our veterinarians use radiographs to detect bone fractures, bladder stones, and tumors, soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive, and urinary systems) as well as to locate swallowed foreign objects such as toys or rocks. Obtaining radiographs is completely painless and can be performed on calm and cooperative pets without sedation. Your veterinarian may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat has trouble becoming fully relaxed naturally. Radiographs may also be sent to a radiography specialist for further interpretation depending on the patient.
