What’s involved with our in-house diagnostics:

We utilize in-house and off-site testing to help us create treatment plans for our clients. We typically use our on-site laboratory for blood, urine, and feces analysis in time-sensitive circumstances. If your pet requires a comprehensive examination, we’d want to send samples out to our off-site lab for a thorough evaluation and detailed test findings.

Laboratory Testing
We recommend that dogs and cats be tested for the following diseases:

  • Heartworms
  • Intestinal worms
  • Tick-borne diseases
  • Feline leukemia and FIV testing (cats only)
  • Giardia
  • Canine pancreatic lipase testing

A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is an image that looks inside the body and displays information that may not be seen from the outside. Radiography can be used to examine your pet’s internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and bones.

When it comes to diagnosing your pet, radiography may be quite beneficial. Digital x-ray technology has advanced considerably over the last several years, allowing greater image control and a more precise diagnosis. This enables us to detect problems that traditional x-rays would not have revealed.


Ultrasound, or ultrasonography, is an imaging technique similar to radiography (x-rays) that is frequently used with radiography and other diagnostic tests. It allows us to see specific organs intricately, such as the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines. It can also be utilized to detect and track pregnancy. Our experts collaborate with specialists who have dedicated their lives to imaging to ensure you get the most out of this fantastic diagnostic tool.
