About Diagnostic Services

Diagnostic Services at our vet hospital play a crucial role in identifying and understanding the health issues affecting your pet. When pets are sick or injured, a thorough diagnostic process is initiated to pinpoint the underlying problems. This category encompasses a range of diagnostic tools, from laboratory testing to imaging, microscopy, and in-house laboratory services, ensuring a comprehensive and timely approach to diagnosing and treating your pet's ailments.

Diagnostic Care

Diagnostic care is the initial step when your pet is unwell or injured. It involves a thorough physical examination and, if necessary, specific diagnostic tests to identify the underlying health issues. Various diagnostic tools, including laboratory testing, imaging, microscopy, and specialized ocular evaluations, are employed to provide a comprehensive assessment.

What's Included?

  • Thorough physical examination and history assessment
  • Laboratory testing for baseline blood counts, organ function, and infectious diseases
  • Imaging procedures such as x-rays and ultrasound for internal organ evaluation
  • Microscopy for the evaluation of lab samples (ear swabs, skin impressions, scrapes, and needle biopsies)
  • Ocular evaluations for tear production, corneal injuries, and intra-ocular pressures
  • Explanation of diagnostic tests' purposes and importance in treatment planning


In-House Laboratory

The in-house laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to provide rapid diagnostic test results, crucial in emergencies or sudden illnesses. This facility enables prompt determination of blood cell counts, blood chemistry, electrolyte levels, SNAP tests for infectious diseases, coagulation tests, and microscopy. The focus is on delivering timely information to guide veterinarians in formulating effective treatment plans.

What's Included?

  • Rapid in-house laboratory equipment for quick test results
  • Blood cell count determination for insights into anemia, infection, and other conditions
  • Blood chemistry tests assessing liver function, kidney function, blood sugar, and more
  • Electrolyte tests to identify abnormalities indicating dehydration or fluid losses
  • SNAP tests for specific infectious diseases
  • Coagulation tests for detecting clotting disorders
  • Microscopy for in-clinic evaluation of bodily fluids and tissues

Why is a thorough diagnostic process necessary for my pet?

A thorough diagnostic process is crucial to identify the root cause of your pet's illness or injury. It helps veterinarians tailor effective treatment plans and assess the likelihood of successful treatment.

What does the physical examination involve, and why is it important?

The physical examination involves a detailed assessment of your pet's health, helping veterinarians identify visible symptoms. It serves as the initial step in understanding the overall condition and guides further diagnostic testing.

How quickly can I expect diagnostic test results from the in-house laboratory?

The in-house laboratory provides rapid results, typically within minutes. This quick turnaround is especially vital in emergencies, allowing prompt decision-making for the best treatment plan.

What conditions can imaging (x-rays and ultrasound) help diagnose in my pet?

Imaging procedures are instrumental in diagnosing conditions such as heart and lung issues, gastrointestinal obstruction, tumors, fluid accumulation, reproductive diseases, and bone/joint disorders.

What is the purpose of SNAP tests, and when are they used?

SNAP tests are point-of-care tests for specific infectious diseases. They are useful for diseases like Feline Leukemia, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, Canine Parvovirus, Giardia, and Leptospirosis, providing quick results for timely intervention.

How can I be involved in the decision-making process for my pet's diagnostic care?
