We use our in-house laboratory for blood work, fecal testing, and cytology. It allows us to assess organ function, monitor ongoing health, check for intestinal parasites, and much more.
When we need to examine your pet’s bones or observe their internal organs' overall shape or position, we rely on our digital radiology (x-ray) equipment. We also take x-rays to monitor fetal development and estimate the number of puppies/kittens in pregnant pets. Digital radiology provides instant, easy-to-read results and exposes pets to less radiation than a traditional x-ray. And because it’s so fast, pets spend less time on the table during this type of exam.
Ultrasonography, or ultrasound, lets us examine soft and fluid-filled organs in great detail. Instead of using radiation, it uses soundwaves to capture images of the liver, spleen, kidneys, lungs, etc. We can even use ultrasound to observe the heart as it beats.
No matter what type of test your pet needs, we strive to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We’re also here to address any questions or concerns you may have to help put your mind at ease.
