Our Diagnostic Services
At our in-house laboratory, we are proud to offer advanced diagnostics to allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis for your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
We're able to use a radiograph (digital x-ray) to examine your pet's internal structures, so information that may be invisible from the outside is revealed.
Radiography is a painless, safe and non-invasive procedure that uses only very low doses of radiation. Since the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is so low, even very young pets and pregnant females may undergo this procedure.
Our vets use radiographs to evaluate organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, fractured bones and some tumors.
- Blood Chemistry
A chemistry panel assesses the function of the liver and kidneys, blood proteins, pancreas, electrolyte levels and more for signs of disease. These tests are run on the fluid contained in a blood sample.
Quantities of each chemical can help your vet learn which of the body's organs may be diseased or malfunctioning.
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
A complete Blood Count (CBC) reveals information about the cells in your pet's blood, including total number, size, shape and appearance. It is an examination of the cells contained in a blood sample.
Your vet will learn about your pet's immune system response, infection, blood clotting, anemia, level of hydration and other data essential to diagnosis.
