In house radiology allows us to examine your pet's body in ways our naked eye can't. Radiographs are most often used to assess the internal organs and bones.
Having an in-house laboratory allows us to quickly and efficiently check for underlying health conditions in your pet. A small blood or urine sample can give us a wealth of information about internal organ function. The sooner an issue is detected, the easier, and more cost effective the treatment will be.
The urinalysis looks for kidney function and can see what bloodwork can’t sometimes. It also shows bacterial infections that your pets may not be showing any signs of.
The bloodwork looks for signs of infection; anemia (problems carrying oxygen) as well as platelet numbers (aids in clotting blood.) It also assesses liver and kidney function; screens for diabetes or electrolyte imbalances and ensures protein levels are where they need to be.
