Dog Lab Tests
When your pet isn’t feeling well, every second counts. We’re here to find the issue quickly using the latest technology and diagnostic tools. Once we have the answer, we’ll provide you with the best course of treatment and get to work as quickly as possible.
Our hospital features full laboratory services for in-house pet diagnostics, which allows us to get answers much quicker than sending samples out and waiting for results. We perform tests on complete blood count (CBC), chemistry, cytology, fecal and urinalysis. We also test pre-anesthesia and already sick pets in-house to ensure quick diagnosis and treatment. For exploratory surgery and biopsies, we use endoscopic equipment at our Geneva location, which allows for a minimally invasive procedure.
We’re Able to See What’s Below the Surface
When your pet isn’t feeling well, it’s not always easy to see what’s ailing them. Using ultrasound and radiology technology, we’re able to see below the surface and get a look inside your pet’s body.
Full digital radiography provides the finest quality films with higher resolution for a more complete, quick and accurate diagnosis. Our direct digital radiology system also allows clients to be able to have a copy of images to share with friends and family.
Ultrasounds are a powerful diagnostic tool. This is a non-invasive procedure that can help our doctors figure out the cause of some of your pet’s ailments. It allows us to look at specific organs or regions to properly provide a diagnosis.
Typical reasons we may use either of these are:
- Cardiac issues
- Foreign body location
- Assess fluid buildup
- Abdominal problems
- Broken bones
