Advanced Veterinary Diagnostics: Accurate Diagnosis Means Quicker, Targeted Treatment
It’s a frightening time when your pet is ill—and frustrating when the problem is not easy to diagnose. Community Pet Hospital’s in-house veterinary laboratory and advanced diagnostic technology give us rapid results and more immediate response time in treating sick or injured pets.
We offer the following diagnostic tools on site:
- Digital X-rays—Digital X-rays are faster and easier to read than traditional radiographs. We use digital X-ray to check for broken bones, foreign objects, heart and lung issues, gastrointestinal concerns, and to diagnose tumors or masses. Digital X-rays also afford us the unique ability to capture a picture of the area of concern and include it in your pet’s file or send it on to a specialist for a second opinion.
- Ultrasound—Ultrasound is a useful diagnostic tool for checking your pet’s organs for abnormalities, closer examination of tumors and masses, and for monitoring pregnancy.
- In-house laboratory—It’s vitally important to get lab results as quickly as possible, since faster results mean faster treatment for your pet. Our in-house laboratory enables us to get same-day test results, many times before you even leave the office. Tests we can perform in our laboratory include:
- Blood chemistry
- Thyroid, T4
- Fecal smears and parasitology
- Ear cytology
Accurately diagnosing pet health problems allows us to begin treatment quickly, which offers you confidence and a greater peace of mind knowing we’re doing everything possible to treat your special pet.
