Diagnostic Services

RadiologyThe ability to provide test results rapidly to our clients is one of the most important properties that make in-house diagnostic tests useful. You are naturally anxious to receive the test results your pet has just undergone. Results that are available quickly (when possible) are best. It is also important for test results to be accurate, cost-effective and easy-to-understand.

X-Rays

X-rays can now be taken digitally and displayed on a computer. This means that we can quickly take a highly-detailed image that provides us with a view of your pet's bones and internal organs. The result: diagnosing a wide range of medical conditions is faster and more accurate than ever before.

Digital x-rays can be saved to a disk and given to you as part of your pet's home medical record. Images can also be quickly shared via email to specialists when a second opinion or additional diagnosis is needed.

Your pet's time on the x-ray table is reduced because fewer images need to be taken. Digital x-rays eliminate the need to use toxic chemicals in the film development process, decreasing the risk of exposure to our staff and the environment.

Laboratory Services

All three of our locations have in-house labs.

One of the most important aspects of any preventive medicine regimen is the ability to analyze how well your pet's internal organs and processes are functioning. Are the kidneys and liver doing their jobs at removing waste from the blood stream? Does your pet have internal parasites?

Our LabBlood testing gives us an insight into your pet's general health. Under certain circumstances additional tests or procedures may be necessary to diagnose more specific conditions. This is why we maintain an in-house laboratory and can regularly test your pet during wellness exams or when we suspect your pet may have a health issue.

Generally, we can obtain results within 15 minutes for the following tests: complete blood count, blood chemistry and electrolytes, urinalysis, blood clotting, and microscopic examinations.

We have a strong association with outside labs for additional diagnostic testing with many results available the next day.

Pharmacy Services

As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we are able to ensure there is a direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form, as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use, as well as monitor its effectiveness.

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.

Ensuring that you have convenient and timely access to competitively-priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.

Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call.
