Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with diagnostic technology designed to rapidly and accurately identify discomfort or disease your pet may be experiencing. If you notice a subtle change in your pet’s behavior, rather than waiting until your next semi-annual wellness visit, it is important to book an appointment right away to prevent possible disease progression and begin a treatment plan.
It is our priority to reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort in our patients. Pain not only affects physical functioning, it may also be harmful to your pet’s mental health. Pain is actively managed before, during, and after any and all procedures.
Client education is of supreme importance to us and we aim to empower pet owners to make informed decisions regarding their pet’s healthcare needs. Often times, pet owners are unaware that their pet is in pain simply due to the communication barriers between pet and pet owner. We are able to educate and help pet owners understand the subtle, yet present, signs of pain their pets are exhibiting that can easily go unnoticed.
Lab testing is an essential preventative medicine tool that assists in the early detection of abnormalities prior to obvious outward symptoms. Testing can range from routine parasite testing to more specific tests designed to show organ functioning.
We strongly recommend lab testing as part of each exam to compare current health status to baseline markers. Aside from assessing overall wellness, lab tests ensure safety before administering anesthesia, prescribing medication, and diagnosis of potential health concerns.
Common lab tests we offer:
- CBC (complete blood counts)
- Blood Chemistry Profiles
- Ear cytology
- Fecal analysis (tests for internal parasites)
- Lyme Disease screening
- Heartworm detection
- Ringworm cultures
- Feline Leukemia screening
- Feline Immunodeficiency screening
- Allergy testing
Our in-house laboratory allows us to analyze samples within 20 minutes. This is advantageous because it eliminates the waiting period for lab results in critical cases. Therefore, treatment and recovery can begin sooner! We are able to conduct a wide-range of testing such as CBC, chemistry, urinalysis, heartworm testing, screening for common tick diseases, pancreatitis, FeLV/FIV screening, and skin/ear cytology.
Radiology is just another way to say x-rays. We offer radiology services that are completely safe, pain-free, and non-invasive. Because we use digital radiography, your pet is exposed to very low levels of radiation which makes the service harmless. X-ray technology is widely used in veterinary medicine due to its speed, clarity of images, and cost-effectiveness.
Radiology services are used in the diagnosis of:
- Kidney Disease
- Heart Disease
- Liver Disease
- Intestinal Blockages
- Bladder Stones
- Broken Bones
- Chronic Arthritis
- Spinal Cord Disease
- Various other conditions
Electrocardiography, or EKG/ECG, is a technological tool used to monitor heart rhythms and electrical impulses. This tool is often used in conjunction with digital radiology and ultrasound equipment to address concerns regarding your pet’s heart. A heart condition may be the underlying cause of symptoms such as coughing, labored breathing, lethargy, and weakness.
This technology is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia. Your pet is simply placed on their side and electrodes are situated on specific areas of the body. Within minutes, we will be able to review the results with you.
We utilize ultrasound technology for its imaging techniques which are helpful in the examination of most parts of the body. Illness and injury is assessed through the examination of areas such as tendons, muscles, joints, and internal organs.
