With state of the art in house veterinary analyzers we can collect blood samples from your pet during your visit and have results in minutes. With our IDEXX analyzers we can run CBCs (complete blood counts), chemistries, and electrolytes, as well as rapid tests to screen for heartworm, tick borne diseases, FeLV (feline leukemia virus), and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). For testing that cannot be performed at our hospital, samples are picked up twice daily ensuring timely processing and interpretation. Our relationships with outside veterinary laboratories provides access to pathologists and other specialists as partners in your pet's health care.
Digital radiology (xrays) at our practice provides immediate imaging as another diagnostic tool. The images provide a picture of internal organs and bones. Modern radiographic technologies take high-quality pictures helping veterinarians make correct inferences and recommend proper treatments. The digital images can be easily transmitted to Board Certified Veterinary Radiologists for secondary review. We work closely with a radiology group providing another partnership in your pet's health care.
Our vets are trained and practiced in completing in house cytology. They may collect samples from your pet during your visit to review using our microscope allowing them to diagnose and treat your pet's condition.
An ultrasound is another non-invasive tool that allows your pet's veterinarian to view internal organs with greater precision. Often times we will call in a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist to complete more thorough diagnostic scans. These procedures are generally performed with little to no sedation, depending on patient compliance. Results are relayed to your vet in real time so that a treatment plan can be devised same day.
