Looking Beneath the Surface: Diagnostic Veterinary Technology
Veterinary technology has advanced rapidly in the past few decades. Pets are living longer because we understand more about what is going on with their health and behavior. Pet diagnostics technology has played a massive role in our growing comprehension. Laboratory testing and imaging technology such as X-rays allow us to look beneath the surface and discover health issues long before they have any visible symptoms.
With our in-house lab, we have the ability to run many diagnostic tests ourselves, with fast, accurate results. However, sometimes it can be more cost efficient and even faster in some cases if we send them to our outside referral lab. Either way, our capabilities are boundless! Our lab work includes:
- Complete blood count
- Blood chemistry panels
- Fecal testing
- Cytology (examining skin cells)
- Fungal cultures
- And more!
Advanced Imaging Technology
In addition to our lab, we also feature the latest in digital X-ray technology. Our advanced digital X-ray equipment enables us to get better quality images in less time, and with less radiation exposure to your pet and to our staff. We can quickly and easily bring your pet’s X-rays up on the screens in the exam rooms. As they explain your pet’s condition, our doctors can zoom in on the problem areas so you can easily see and understand the concerns for yourself. Additionally, you won’t have to lug around bulky, fragile films to a referral veterinarian should your pet need a referral!
Digital X-rays help us address a range of conditions including:
- Bone fractures and joint problems
- Foreign body location
- Assessing bladder or kidney stones
- Examining internal organs
- And much more!
