Diagnostics Laboratory and Radiology
Diagnostic imaging is critical in diagnosing patients. The ability to use advanced equipment to ‘see’ exactly what is normal or abnormal within, as well as plan and execute effective treatment has revolutionized veterinary medicine and our ability to take care of your pet. We are a clear leader in diagnostic imaging.
Our hospital is equipped with an In-House Laboratory that allows our veterinarians to quickly perform diagnostic tests on a variety of body fluids (ear swabs, blood, urine, etc) and other samples (feces, etc) to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis. This is especially important in very ill animals and those requiring immediate or emergency treatment. While not all samples can be analyzed in-house; when this capability is combined with our outside laboratory services, a full comprehensive laboratory evaluation is obtained.
Our hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art Digital Radiology Services. Digital x-rays are essentially film-less x-rays. There are many advantages to digital x-rays including a shorter time to take the x-ray, lack of chemicals needed to process an x-ray and less radiation exposure to your pet and veterinarian. These x-rays can also be digitally enhanced for best visualization of a problem. Digital x-rays can easily be copied to disk, magnified or sent to a specialist for evaluation at the press of a button.
