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
  • Electrolytes
  • CBC
  • Thyroid, T4
  • Urinalysis
  • 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.
