We have an in-house laboratory, where we can quickly run blood work to diagnose a problem. If your pet is sick, it becomes very important to know the status of their internal organs. Knowing the condition of their liver, kidneys, pancreas, electrolytes and different blood cells will be helpful for deciding the right treatment plan. Getting the blood work quickly from the in-house lab will accelerate the treatment of critically sick patients and emergency situations. Patients coming for surgeries need blood work before the surgery.
The in-house blood lab is very helpful in those situations as it gives the most current status of the pet’s health which adds towards the success of a surgery. Some testing may require blood work to be sent to specialized labs.
Veterinary radiology is a very important branch of diagnostics, which help to diagnose various problemswith our fur buddies. We have a modern digital x-ray system that can take images quickly with less radiational exposure. The x-ray facility helps to diagnose the problems related to gastrointestinal tract, respiratory, orthopedic, muscular skeletal, urogenital, and other body system. Having a digital x-ray system makes it easy to send the x-rays to a board-certified radiologist for their opinion whenever necessary.
We utilize the services of ultrasound experts for diagnosis and monitoring of medical problems when needed. Ultrasound requires taking several sonographic images of the internal organs and then having them interpreted from a radiologist. Ultrasound can be used to take samples for cytology’s in order to diagnose some disease and tumors.
Urinalysis, fecal tests, Cytology, Biopsy, Tonometry and Blood pressure measurement is some of the other diagnostic works we do at Main Street Animal Hospital.
