When a concern is discovered during an exam, a prompt diagnosis is essential. Our in-house diagnostic tools can provide valuable information about your pet’s condition, so that a treatment plan may be implemented quickly.
Our on-site diagnostic services include:
LaboratoryOur state-of-the-art Idexx Lasercyte and Catalyst analyzers are some of the highest quality in-house diagnostic machines available. This equipment provides prompt results and enables us to spot trends in your pet’s health over time.
RadiographyX-rays provide detailed images of your pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, and internal organs.
UltrasonographyUltrasound uses sound waves to examine a pet’s internal organs, as well as to detect fluid, cysts, tumors, and abscesses. If your pet requires an ultrasound, we will arrange to have an experienced ultrasonographer come to our clinic. The ultrasound images will be sent to a board-certified veterinary radiologist for prompt and expert interpretation. Ultrasound does not involve radiation, has no known side effects, is well tolerated, and typically does not require sedation.
Ocular diagnosticsWe are pleased to be able to quickly and accurately measure intra-ocular pressure to check for serious conditions such as glaucoma. Our advanced Tonovet tonometer is extremely fast and painless.
Cardiac diagnosticsWe can easily run an electrocardiogram (ECG) in our hospital to help us diagnose and interpret any heart arrhythmias. Via our telemedicine service, Cardiopet, we can call upon the expertise of a board-certified veterinary cardiologist within minutes, if required.
We are proud to use Idexx Laboratories for all our off-site laboratory testing. Idexx provides exceptional service and high-quality, prompt diagnostic services. Combined with our in-house analyzers, we can monitor trends in organ and blood cell parameters with ease.
Accurate diagnostics are an important component of both preventive care and treatment protocols. We are pleased to offer our clients advanced, high-quality diagnostic tools.
