Diagnosis

 

When a problem exists, trying to figure out what's wrong is the first priority. To that end, we offer a number of different
diagnostic modalities to assist in the diagnosis. The first is, of course, the complete physical exam. If the issue is not
apparent on a physical, several options exist.

 

Laboratory tests: We are able to perform a number of
different forms of testing. Fecal parasite tests, urinalysis, and several different types of blood tests are done in-house. We also utilize two different reliable veterinary labs for more extensive blood testing (serum chemistries, hematology, serology, etc.), biopsies (pathology), and consultations.

 

Radiographic Imaging: We are able to produce high quality radiographs on site, when necessary.

 

Ultrasound: Abdominal ultrasounds can be performed whenever needed to further delineate the cause of a problem when radiology is not sufficient.

 

Electrocardiograms are performed here and are analyzed by off-site veterinary cardiologists.

 

Blood Pressure measurements can be obtained in a matter of minutes.
