In House Diagnostics

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. Unfortunately, our four-legged friends can’t tell us when something is bothering them, and they often are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods during which time the condition worsens.

In many instances, physical examinations alone are simply not enough to determine the source of illness in your pet. Fortunately, with the continued advances and breakthroughs in the area of diagnostics and radiographs, veterinarians are increasingly able to take a much more detailed look at the causes of medical conditions affecting pets. By equipping our hospital and staff with modern in-house diagnostic tools and equipment, we can diagnose and treat our patients more accurately and quickly.  As an accredited member hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), we follow stringent standards of excellence in all our diagnostic procedures.

Animal Care Hospital uses the following in-house diagnostics to care for your pet:
 
Radiography

Through the use of radiographs (commonly referred to as x-rays), our veterinarians and staff are able to capture diagnostic images of your pet’s bones and soft tissue. Radiographs are used to detect many conditions, including:

  • Bladder stones
  • Foreign body ingestion
  • Tumors
  • Broken bones
  • Cardiac and lung disease
  • Disease of the abdominal organs, including the liver, kidneys, spleen and intestines

 
On-Site Laboratory Testing

In addition to radiography, our on-site laboratory allows us to perform the following diagnostic testing:

  • Urinalysis
  • Complete blood counts
  • Blood chemistry profiles
  • Heartworm testing
  • Lyme disease testing
  • Fungal cultures
  • Intestinal parasite screening
  • Parvoviral enteritis testing
  • Feline leukemia virus testing
  • Lyme and tick-borne disease testing
  • Thyroid hormone assay

If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give the dedicated professionals at Animal Care Hospital a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health.
